Description

One day silver clay workshop in Market Bosworth taught by a fully qualified metal clay artist

Come and have fun learning the magic of Silver Metal Clay. Silver clay is a recycled product which when fired becomes solid silver and is Hallmark quality. The best thing is it requires few tools so makes a great new hobby.

On this beginners workshop you will learn how to:
Roll and pattern clay
Cut shapes and create moulds
Sand , drill and prepare your piece for firing
Fire and polish
add patinas

During the day we will make three projects .

1) Firstly we will use Silver paste to create a beautiful leaf pendant or earrings.This method captures all the beautiful details on your chosen leaf)

2) Using moulding compound we will make a mould of a small object like a shell, plant, button or charm (you can bring your own objects but we will have plenty of things available to mould ) Once we have made the mould we will use it to create a silver charm for a pendant or bracelet.

3) The final project will show you how to roll out the clay, texture it and create a pendant or charm. You will then be shown how to add a gem stone of your choice.

Once all your projects are ready you will be shown how to fire them so that they become pure solid silver. We finish the day by polishing your pieces to a beautiful shine and adding patinas if required

Really interesting day, Louise was very friendly and her knowledge of silver clay was extensive. Made to feel very welcome despite the covid restrictions and I'm really chuffed with the jewellery I produced. Would thoroughly recommend this course to anyone interested in jewellery making. Many thanks Louise.

I had a lovely day with Louise . Louise explained everything and demonstrated very clearly. I made a beautiful necklace and earings during the time.
I would highly recommend a creative day with Louise. Her workshop is in a peaceful setting in the garden backing on to fields.

When putting in postcode to get there do put in Market Bosworth not Nuneaton. I ended up in the wrong place . Louise was very inderstanding and accomodating at my late arrival.

Thank you Louise for great tuition and a fun, creative day.

Thank you again Louise.
