Once you have done a beginners course, or had a chance to play with some silver clay yourself, you might want to learn some more advanced techniques. This full day course will give you an opportunity to make a decorated ring from silver clay.
What will you learn?
There are a few choices on this course, you can make a ring with a glass stone, with a silver clay decoration on or with some texture or carving around it.
You will learn how to size it and work out shrinkage so your final piece is the correct size.
Depending on the ring you make, you will learn different types of textures and techniques for adding decorations
You will learn the process for sizing, cutting and seamlessly joining the ring shank, then making the decorations to add afterwards.
The ring can be thin, thick, rounded or flat, there is plenty of scope in this workshop for your own design.
Once dried I will explain some techniques for decorating the ring, adding feature pieces or decoration around the shank
This workshop can be used as practice for part of the level 1 Diploma course, which includes 2 rings. Please note, you will need some experience of working with metal clay to get the best out of this course

I have just spent a wonderful 2 days on Lori's beginners silver clay course. Having never done jewellery making before I had no expectations of being able to make anything I would be proud of but how wrong I was. Lori is very patient and helpful, explains all the processes clearly and gives you confidence.
Her workshop is very well equipped and organised and Lori times it all so well that you never feel rushed at any stage. At the end of the course I left with pieces I am delighted with and had met some other lovely like minded ladies who were equally as happy with their efforts. I intend to go back and do further courses with Lori and I would urge anyone who is thinking about giving this a try to go to Lori - I can highly recommend her.
This was a great experience tailored to us as individuals. I have a little experience in jewellery making but none in pmc and I felt I learned a lot and would thoroughly recommend the course to both complete beginners and those wanting to extend their skills.
I felt we had a generous allocation of materials to work with and we produced pieces to feel good about!
I had two very good productive days with Lori in her workshop and am extremely pleased with the pieces I made. Lori patiently took me through each stage and taught me lots of new skills. The first day was quite intense (when all the groundwork was done) but the second day was when all the magic happened! I was made to feel at home in Lori's well equipped workshop and look forward to returning again for another course in the future.
This was an excellent course, ideal for the novice. Lori is an superb and very patient teacher and the other ladies in the group made the whole experience perfect. I would highly recommend to anyone to take this course. I am over the moon with all my pieces of jewellery I made.
Thank you Lori.
Lori was a great teacher, very patient and knowledgeable.
I had a great time and look forward to the next course!
We had a brilliant day making a necklace from a leaf, Lori is very welcoming and lovely, she is a fab teacher and makes beautiful jewellery. A relaxing few hours producing a unique special piece, will definitely do another workshop :-)
The course was extremely informative and I came away with many new skills.
Lori is a wonderful teacher and her depth of knowledge is amazing.
Thank you Lori for everything
As a complete novice I really didn't expect to achieve much on my two day beginner course, however I couldn't have been more wrong! Lori is such a great teacher, patient, professional and excellent at what she does. Over the course of the two days she taught me not only every technique that I need to start making my own art clay pieces, but also dozens of hints and tips that she has found due to her extensive experience. Lori is generous and very easy going, putting you at ease from the outset and letting you work at your own pace, whilst explaining every element of the process. I simply cannot recommend her highly enough.
