Who is this course for
Join us for this intensive weekend course to explore a range of techniques working with silver clay, a versatile material that is easy to use from home. You will learn how to create your own unique jewellery pieces. Ideal for beginners and those with some jewellery experience wishing to learn a new skill.
What does this course cover
Silver clay is a relatively new product to the market. It can be worked like clay and is made of fine silver particles, a binder and water. When it is fired (which can be done with an inexpensive butane torch at home) the result is a 99.9% fine silver piece which is of hallmark quality. If you would like to make silver jewellery at home this is a relatively inexpensive way to have a go.
On this course you will learn about silver clay and make pieces that will be ready to take home at the end of the sessions.
You will learn how to:
- Roll out, texture and cut out the clay consistently
- Dry and file the clay before firing
- Fire your own pieces using a hand-held butane torch
- Polish your piece and add a jump ring, ready to wear
You will make a variety of different pieces including earrings and pendants
