Learn to make your own beautiful solid silver jewellery from Art clay silver. This is a very versatile medium, so the possibilities are endless! Friendly instruction in a beautiful surrounding They will all be held at my fully equipped studio in the Staffordshire countryside in a 400 year old converted barn. I am fully qualified in the Art Clay Silver Diploma and have been making silver clay jewellery for a few years now. I have always loved teaching, so here is my opportunity to bring my two loves together and teach Silver Jewellery making. At the end of the course you will take away some fabulous jewellery made by you. The course will teach you the following: - All about the silver clay - How to prepare it and condition it - How to roll out, cut shapes, add texture and detail - How to mould shapes, then add them to other pieces - How to join 2 separate pieces together - The methods to get the best finish on your pieces - How to fire them using methods such as a cook’s torch - How to polish your fired pieces - Adding ear wires and put your pendants on a chain Depending on the speed of the students in the class, there may be the opportunity to add some colour by antiquing your pieces. No experience is necessary in any form of jewellery making.
