* All of my jewellery workshops are limited to 6 people due to the time sensitive nature of the materials we use, and all participants will be working 2 metres apart with individual tools and materials.*
In this four hour session, you will be taught the basics of working with silver clay and sterling silver with demonstrations and tips for successful ring making. You will be taught how to measure, cut, fire, solder and finish a minimum of one ring.
I am a qualified teacher with over 20 years experience and have been teaching silver clay workshops for 8 years. My work is inspired by natural forms; mainly flowers, foliage and the seaside.

I absolutely loved it! As a complete beginner I found Tuuli an excellent teacher, she is very patient and helpful. It was a small friendly class so I felt I had plenty of help when needed. I am delighted and very proud of the ring and pendant I made and very much looking forward to doing another course soon! Thank you Tuuli.
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you so much for your feedback Carrie! I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop and really appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. I look forward to sharing more jewellery making techniques with you in the future. Best wishes, Tuuli
Bought this for my mother. Unfortunately due to Covid she had to wait a while. However, she absolutely loved the course, and made a wonderful ring, now using what she has learned to make rings in her studio. Thank you!
Response from Tuuli Parker:I'm so pleased to hear this Kallum! She asked lots of questions and seemed very excited to get back to her studio and put into practice what she had learned. Thank you for taking the time to give me feedback, it is greatly appreciated! Best wishes, Tuuli
This is my second session, I did the Silver Clay Saturday morning class last September and really enjoyed both. Tuuli is a very good communicator, very patient and helpful. The groups are small, so everyone is able to get the help and support they need. I was very happy with the ring I made, it’s amazing what you can achieve in a 4 hour workshop with little or no previous knowledge of working with the equipment and materials. If you’re thinking of booking a session, I would definitely recommend it, you won’t be disappointed!
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you Elaine for leaving such a lovely and detailed review! Your feedback is very important to me. I'm so glad you enjoyed the workshop. Kind regards, Tuuli
This is my second course with Tuuli, and i I really enjoyed it. She's a great teacher and I didn't feel confused at any point even though a lot of the processes (like soldering and hammering) were totally new to me. I felt very proud of what I'd made at the end too! I also took my mum as her Xmas present and she thoroughly enjoyed herself too and is so pleased with the ring and earrings she made herself. Can't recommend highly enough.
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you so much for your lovely feedback Sam! I really appreciate you taking the time to leave it. I'm so glad you and your mum enjoyed the workshop.
Had such a lovely time, making my creations. It was only a small class and Tuuli was able to give everyone plenty of time to talk through all the processes. Really enjoyed the class and can't wait to get started.
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you so much for your feedback Katherine. It is greatly appreciated. Welcome to the addictive world of silversmithing!
My 2nd class with Tuuli and it was just as good as the first! I loved the class and Tuuli is patient, informative and helpful. I also loved the small class size which meant everyone got 1 to 1 help and advice when they needed.
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you so much for leaving feedback. I'm so glad you enjoyed it Jodie!
