In this class, we will play with silver precious metal clay. If you bring a found object you like we may be able to make a silicone mould (we will discuss this beforehand) and make it out of PMC. Hand building is also possible! A 20g bag of sterling silver PMC is included with this course, worth over £50. You can take this home with you if you have any left. Whatever you create can be made into dangle earrings, charms or I can solder it onto a ring band for you.
This class is suitable for beginners and is an introduction to PMC and you will oversee some basic silversmithing techniques. We will break each stage down step by step throughout the class so you can leave wearing your new creation!
I tutor up to 4 people in one session. More can be accommodated, but I will need to bring another teacher in - so only on request!
This will take place in my studio in Penryn (near Falmouth), Cornwall. Please note, my studio is shared with a few other artists so there may be other people around while I'm teaching.
Courses can be 4-6 hours long.
Classes are suitable for anyone over 16; for ages 14-16 they will need to be accompanied by an adult who is also booked into the class.
Please click the 'message the tutor' button if you have any questions at all!
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
A 20g bag of PMC silver and either earring hooks/studs, a jump ring (if making a charm) or the silver band for a ring.
Please bring a pack lunch!
5 hours (flexible times to suit)
