About the Course
If you want to make a bespoke, unique piece of jewellery either for a special occasion or as a special gift then our silver clay workshop will fulfill this for even those who are complete beginners. Using embossing mats, cutters and other tools, you will learn to create something amazing. Using PMC - Pure Metal Clay which is silver suspended in a clay binder. This medium can be transformed into 99.9% real silver after firing picking up the most finest details including fingerprints for keepsakes for grandchildren or newborns. Firing is done with either a small domestic blowtorch or in our kiln.
One of the workshops has a Christmas focus for some festive silver smithing and silver clay work, please see the website for more details.

What a fantastic day. From the moment we arrived Yolanda and John made us very welcome and within minutes we had a cuppa! Always a good start to any experience. Yolanda made us feel at ease in their amazing studio, talking us through each stage in the production of our silver master pieces.
Lunch was provided by John and that was epic. So much choice and such full bellies. (It didn't stop there......we also had afternoon tea!). Thank you to both Yolanda and John for an amazing day that will stay in my memory forever and for having aircon! Love my pendant and shall wear it with pride. What a lovely way to spend our wedding anniversary.xx

Yolanda and John instantly provide a very warm and friendly atmosphere. Yolanda is an excellent teacher giving clear explanations, expert help and advice when needed and with full encouragement and support to try everything yourself. Everything was included, even the superb lunch and tea - and I went home with beautiful, unique silver pieces, hand crafted by me!
A magical day!

Keep the class sizes small, the number of us doing silver was just right. I am constantly learning with each attendance.
