About the Course

Enjoy the magic of metal clay in the hilltop Dorset town of Shaftesbury. Beginners are especially welcome.

Work with fully qualified teacher and art clay instructor Fiona Ingram to shape, texture, finish and fire your very own pendant, charm or earrings in fine silver.
Small groups and a relaxed, supportive atmosphere are guaranteed. You even get to take your very own piece of jewellery home with you on the day.

This course makes a lovely gift for someone creative! As well as this introductory course I also run a range of other silver clay jewellery courses such as silver clay jewellery inspired by nature, ring making, simple stone setting and an introduction to working with bronze and copper metal clay. I am always happy to arrange bespoke tuition for individuals or small groups.

Please contact me for current dates and further details. My "Introduction to silver clay" can now be taken over Skype. I simply send you a list of items required for the course beforehand. The price for this is £25 per hour, with two hours required.

I spent a lovely morning with Fiona learning about silver clay and how to handle it. Fiona was so patient and helpful - guiding and advising but leaving me to create my own jewellery. She picked leaves from her garden which I used to texture my pendant and earrings, and there was enough clay to make a little matching charm as well. I was amazed at how good the finished products were and they have been greatly admired by friends and family. I really enjoyed the workshop and have already signed up for the next level.

Today, two friends and I spent a morning with Fiona making earrings and pendants using silver clay. Fiona gave us an explanation of what silver clay is and how best to work with it. She guided us along the way, so we could create our own individual pieces. I am so impressed with the jewellery we all made - I don't consider myself to be particularly creative but my silver earrings and pendants are just beautiful! Thank you Fiona!
