Silver clay jewellery making class for groups of 2-4 people. Class will begin with an introduction to the tools and workshop machinery used during the day and a safety briefing. Students will then learn about the properties of silver clay and how to work with it and will then choose or draw their own design. Each student will receive a piece of silver clay to make their design, fire it and then learn how to polish it either using a polishing machine, tumbler or sanding. Finally the student will put their piece together with sterling silver findings, to make a complete and unique jewellery piece to take home with them.
Course cost is £75 per person and up to 4 people maximum. One to one tuition is also available, please contact me for details.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
All equipment and materials will be supplied to make one piece of jewellery per person. Extra materials will be available on the day at additional cost.
Tea, coffee and biscuits will be provided but if the class covers a lunch period a packed lunch will be required as there are no shops locally.
10:00am to 2:00pm

Loved my day with Sandra learning all about using silver clay to make beautiful jewellery, I love the pendant and earrings I made. With Sandras excellent tuition I feel confident to try to make more at home.
Absolutely fantastic four hours worth of tuition. We learned a lot about silver clay and what could be done with it. My thirteen year old granddaughter made herself a sun pendant and I made a leaf broach - we were both very impressed with what we managed to do within the time.
Sandra is an excellent tutor and also has the most amazing jewellery collection that she has made.
I will be booking for the other course she runs in silver jewellery as I now want to learn more.
Thank you Sandra for a super day.
Response from Sandra Kerns Jewellery:Thank you - it was lovely to meet you both. Your pieces were really lovely too
I would recommend Sandra’s courses without hesitation. Sandra is extremely knowledgeable and good at teaching. The session was really enjoyable and I came away with a lovely piece of jewellery. Sandra was generous with her knowledge and intent on ensuring we left equipped with the information we needed to go home and produce more of our own jewellery. 5/5. I hope to go back for another course in a different area of jewellery making.
Response from Sandra Kerns Jewellery:Thank you Caron - it was lovely to meet you and I look forward to seeing you again - Sandra
We had. Fantastic time on Sandra’s silver clay course , lovely lady full of knowledge and a great teacher.
We were over the moon with our pendants that we made, I’m so pleased with the little heart I made for my granddaughter for her first birthday and my friend made a beautiful flower.
It was a great day and we felt completely safe in these COVID times .
Can not recommend it enough .
Response from Sandra Kerns Jewellery:Thank you Chris, it was a pleasure having you both at the studio and your pieces were beautiful.
Sandra is an excellent tutor, for an introduction to the craft I was very pleased to come away with a pair of earrings and 2 pendants. The studio is very well equipped with everything you may need. I cannot recommend Sandra's course highly enough and will definitely be returning for further tuition on all aspects of jewellery making.
