About the Course
On the beginners silver clay day you will learn how to shape, texture and mould the clay in the morning. Following a break for lunch, which will allow the clay time to dry, we will file smooth and fire the pieces before polishing.
This course is perfect for complete beginners. No previous experience of jewellery making needed as we will break each step down throughout the day.
You will learn lots of tips and everything you need to make your own silver clay pieces at home as well as taking at least 2 pieces of finished silver clay jewellery home with you on the day!
We ask for a £30 deposit to confirm your place with the £50 balance due a week before the class.
This class will be at our Basingstoke studio.
We do also offer classes at the Farnham Maltings; the next session here is 20th July- please book directly with The Maltings.
