Silver Clay is a unique clay like substance with silver particles suspended in it. It can be moulded like Plasticine but after firing becomes 99.9% real silver.
This course is for everyone, mums, dads, teens – anyone who wants to create that very special “one off” piece of bespoke jewellery – whether it is a fingerprint of a newborn or something special for a family member or friend. Each piece is unique to the maker.
The craft is environmentally friendly because the precious metals contained in the clay are recovered from scrapped computers and other electronic equipment.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All tools and equipment including findings, gems, ribbon, 10 grams of Silver Clay and packaging are provided on the day with the option to purchase more Silver Clay if needed. Refreshments are provided throughout the day as is a splendid lunch made from fresh local ingredients.

Great courses... silversmithing and silver clay. I had a wonderful time and learned loads! Lovely lunch and afternoon tea.
Silver clay course - I cannot recommend Yolanda highly enough, both as a teacher and a host.
She provided the perfect welcoming environment in which to learn, the whole day was relaxing informative and fun.
I enjoyed every moment, including the delicious lunch and afternoon tea,
What a wonderful way to spend a day - I will be back!
A small group of us attended the silver clay workshop. We all had our own equipment and tools. The studio is very light, airy and very comfortable. Yolanda and John quickly put us at ease. There was a plentiful supply of tea/coffee or cold drinks. We had a fabulous lunch and later in the day we had afternoon tea. All the materials we required were included in the price as was the lunch. Yolanda is an excellent tutor. She is patient and her instructions are clear And encouraging. There was plenty of one to one tuition as and when required. We all had a fabulous time and feel the cost of the course was very good value. We will be back to do another course. In view of the size of the studio we were able to maintain social distancing. We were each supplied with a mask and a bottle of sanitiser which we were encouraged to use.
great day very enjoyable well worth the time and money spent
Really enjoyed the course. Yolanda is an excellent instructor - very clear and supportive - and looked after us well. It was great fun and inspiring to come away with something I'd made that turned out well, and with good tips on how to do more myself at home. Very much recommend the course.
I have completed a number of different courses run by Yolanda at TeachMe courses and this silver clay course proved to be as good as the others. The instruction, even for a complete novice was excellent. The class size was small and the facilities excellent with all materials and tools provided as well as refreshments, a lovely lunch and even cake in the afternoon.
I have no hesitation in recommending this course to anyone wishing to learn silver clay crafting.
I can't praise our teacher Yolanda enough, I had no previous experience but this didn't matter at all she went through the process thoroughly sharing her knowledge. The studio is an Aladins cave of tools and treasures all available for use during the day.
We enjoyed lovely hospitality, a splendid lunch and I would thoroughly recommend this course.
It has certainly inspired me to go on and explore further.
Really good course! Thoroughly enjoyed it! The teacher pitched the course at just the right level! I would recommend it!
I would like to pass on my thanks and appreciation to Yolanda for the brilliant class I attended using silver clay. It was a fantastic day, venue wonderful, amazing teacher so knowledgeable, patient, fun and opened up our minds to many different aspects of the medium. I came away with two pieces of wearable jewellery which I was amazed at... I hope to attend more of her classes in the future and will highly recommend her to my friends.
Amazing, fantastic and very informative. Yolanda was a excellent tutor and we covered more than just silver clay. The classes are small and go at a pace that as a learner I could manage. I love my bespoke jewellery and look forward to going again soon.
I have no hesitation in recommending TeachMe. Yolanda is a wonderful host and teacher, making everyone feel relaxed and welcome and never tiring of our questions. Everything is provided and the lunch was delicious. This is far more in depth than most silver clay courses and the finished results were fantastic!
I love this course! I have completed it twice now and about to do my third. I am learning so much and developing my skills with each course.
Yolanda is an amazing teacher and all the tools and equipment are there for you to use. Nothing is too much trouble and I highly recommend attending any of their courses. The studio is amazing and you are always provided with plenty of tea and coffee and lunch is always a delight too!
