Such a unique gift for family and friends, and YOU actually made them!

Never worked with Silver clay before? That's great, this workshop is perfect for you!

Guided by your instructor you’ll learn the basics of working with silver clay, how to handle it, roll, shape, and texture it, before drying and refining, then onto torch firing, polishing and finally learning how to patina.

I loved everything about this course! Charlotte was a brilliant instructor who took time to ensure I was confident working with the materials and gave me plenty of time to experiment until I had the designs I wanted. The whole process was fascinating and I am delighted with the two pendants I made. They are really beautiful and unique and I wouldn't have dreamed I could have made something as lovely!
Being able to take away my jewellery on the day was great too. I'm wearing one of the pendants and my daughter is wearing the other. We both love them.
It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon and I'd recommend Charlotte's workshop to anyone. I will definitely be doing another one soon!
Thank you Charlotte :)

I had a wonderful afternoon working with Charlotte and thoroughly enjoyed working with the silver clay. I was sooooooo pleased with my final pieces. I had plenty of time to experiment and Charlotte helped me every step of the way to get the effect that I wanted. I will definitely be joining Charlotte again and would recommend her sessions to anyone wanting to make their own personalised jewellery.

Thank you so much Charlotte

Response from Felix & Reuben Jewellery School:

Thank you soooo much for your review Ali! We're so glad you enjoyed the workshop! Thank you, Charlotte

I really enjoyed the silver clay workshop it was brilliant to be able to come away with some beautiful pieces of jewellery the same day.

It was lovely having 'one-to-one' instruction which made the workshop very personal.

I would recommend doing this workshop to anyone and in fact have done already!

Thank you again Charlotte for sharing your knowledge, I'm very keen to buy a starter kit now and start making lovely jewellery at home.

Would like to learn how to make rings so will definitely be back when that course is available,

Thank you again.

I had an AMAZING experience with Charlotte in her cosy studio, one to one instruction on how to craft my two beautiful pieces was fantastic.

I wasn’t expecting to come away with such beautiful, unique and personalised jewellery. I couldn’t be happier with my pieces or the experience, I would recommend this to anyone!

Thank you so much Charlotte- I will definitely be back!!
