About the Course
No experience necessary.
Silver clay is relatively a new medium in jewellery making and you might have seen an episode of MAKE! Craft Britain on BBC, showcasing silver clay recently.
Art Clay Silver is made up of 92% recycled silver, 8% binder and water. When fired ACS pieces turn into “Fine Silver” which is .999 pure silver and has more silver particles than .925 sterling silver. ACS will shrink approximately 8-10% when fired.
During the workshop you will go through the following steps:
Drying and Smoothing
And you will learn:
Rolling & cutting, texturing, layering, pre-fire finishing, post fire finishing, polishing, and if desired oxidising to create ‘antiquing’ effect.
I like to give full attention to all the attendees and therefore my workshops are generally only for 4-5 people.
Spaces are limited and booking is essential.
Please contact me if you have any questions and find out about the alternative dates and places you can have the workshop.
A bit about your instructor:
I am a jewellery artist. I was born in Turkey and now live in Whitley Bay and work from my studio at the Biscuit Box Studios in Newcastle upon Tyne. I have been designing and making jewellery professionally for some time now. I have a background in design and 3D modelling and teaching these skills. I like to combine traditional silversmithing techniques with metal clay techniques. I like to utilize centuries old techniques such as mokume-gane, keum-boo and enamelling to fuse different materials together to create something unique. I am a member of the Network Artists North East, the Association for Contemporary Jewellery, and The Craft Council Directory. I am also registered with Edinburgh Assay Office where my creations are hallmarked.
