The diploma courses are based on the curriculum developed in Japan by Aida Chemicals. These are world-wide recognised courses supported by Art Clay World. The programme requires that you have previous experience working with metal clay so you have the foundation skills and understand the processes involved.
This intensive level one diploma course covers six set projects to demonstrate different skills and techniques in working with silver clay. The projects include a stone setting, using paste for the leaf project and a brooch with stone settings. Two projects demonstrate your control of a syringe, attaching various findings and settings for stones.
Following the course and the successful completion of each project task to the required standards, your tutor will submit you paperwork in order to issue your certificate. After you have received your certificate, you will be entitled to claim a discount on your Art Clay products from any of the official suppliers and you will also be able to teach introductory classes.
Following this course you can progress onto the Level Two Diploma. Our tutor will offer free advice on what preparations you can make for the course.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and materials are included in the course fee.
Tracey will give hands on demonstrations of each project task, with step by step instructions to support you throughout the course. Each piece is graded and marked and a full assessment of your progress is provided.
