I offer day courses in Silver Clay. Silver clay is ground down silver combined with a binder which once sculpted and fired burns away to leave pure silver (99%). It means that you can create beautiful silver jewellery easily in one session. As an enameller the reason I started using silver clay was to create pieces that I could then enamel, which can also be covered. The Silver clay can be fired in a number of ways (depending on the size of the project) and I will cover these in the course. It is also ideal for making rings and I have had a few students choose to make their wedding rings). Prices start at £75 per person depending on course numbers and your course requirements, so do contact me to find out more.
Classes are tailored to suit so contact me to book for your individual requirements.
I can honestly say that I have never enjoyed a course more than this!!
Toni was so welcoming and made me feel so at ease. She's great at teaching her subject and it's obvious that she really enjoys doing what she does. All my questions were answered leaving me feeling confident to carry on doing this at home.
I made an earring and necklace set and a little heart necklace all for the price of the course, and learned different techniques to use.
I'm absolutely thrilled with what I made and will be going back to join in with an enameling course in the near future.
Don't think about booking a course with Toni, just do it - you won't regret it!
I real enjoyed Toni Peer's silver class at Firstsite, Colchester. I found her approach very helpful, not too pushy but there to help when needed. Good facilities (which Toni has to lug about). Good examples and lots of gentle knowledgeable encouragement.
I did the silver clay course with Toni in the spring of this year. Silver clay crafts was something I had always wanted to try so, having received the course booking as a birthday present, I went along and had the most fantastic time! Toni was very welcoming and made sure we understood everything around the craft (which tools to use, why to do mock ups, firing, etc.) and gave us tips for doing it at home as well. I wanted to go with a friend, and Toni did the course just for the two of us on a date that suited us. We produced some really impressive jewellery and can only recommend Toni Peers as a teacher.
Ring making course was our second time with Toni. Me and my friend Renata made our first silver rings ever . Had a fabulous day again . I have done a couple of metal clay courses in London where I felt rushed not being able to finish the piece as I would like to as we had to start another project . With Toni,the class felt much more relaxed and I actually went home with finished piece .Radka
I booked a silver clay beginners class for my daughter's 21st birthday. We were made very welcome by Toni, her tuition was excellent and very informative. Our total experience was a fun creative day, that gave lasting gifts and new memories. Highly recommended for any occasion.
Many thanks for making helping to this day special.
Very much enjoyed trying silver clay jewellery. Toni is an excellent teacher. She covered everything. Not all teachers do,unless you make a mistake, then they tell you what you needed to know. Toni tells you before you make any mistakes. Thanks.
We weren't sure what to expect when we booked to make our own wedding rings but the day was wonderful. Toni's an engaging, patient and informative tutor. She explained every step and made sure we were able to practice as much as we liked until we felt competent to use the silver clay.
The whole process is simpler than we expected and we were able to enjoy every step, which has made the rings even more special. Toni kept the rings for us and made sure they were highly polished ready for our big day.
We've had loads of compliments on the rings including from a complete stranger while we were on honeymoon who spotted Alison's and asked about it.
What a truly special experience our wedding ring making day with Toni was. Toni is very knowledgable teacher, able to communicate her expertise on this craft- in which neither myself or my partner had any experience, with clarity and simplicity. Very grateful for her guidance, reassurances, patience and numerous cups of tea and coffee! It made for a memorable and day for us both. A fun and affordable method of creating priceless rings!
Lovely, relaxing day. Toni was very knowledgable and helpful, she made the course easy to follow and I appreciated the worksheets we got to take home with us. Would definitely recommend, and I hope to attend some of her other courses in the future.
Very enjoyable course, very relaxing - everything explained and Toni very helpful with tips, knowledge/experience, etc. Amazed how many pieces I made from what looks like a small piece of clay! Definitely recommend this course.
