You will learn how to prepare the clay, fire and polish. With a wide range of jewellery options from cufflinks to earrings, necklaces to charms there's something for everyone.
This lovely process allows you to be creative in an accessible way, so anyone can do it! Use treasures from your life as inspiration (or even to make your moulds) or just be inspired by the beautiful Shropshire Hills that surround the Severn Studio.
The full day will enable you to feel confident enough in the process to keep it up when you are at home, having made 4-6 pieces of silver clay in a variety of techniques.

I had a thoroughly enjoyable day with Rachel in her wonderful workshop (very envious of it!). Upon arrival I was greeted by a lovely little welcome sign guiding me to the parking and workshop, which I thought was a very nice touch. She is a very friendly and relaxed person, with a lovely personality who makes you feel at home right away, and has a huge amount of knowledge to pass on. The morning was spent getting to know the tools, different techniques and how to make moulds. Then in the afternoon I was able to go ahead using the knowledge gained in the morning to produce several pieces which I then attached to a lovely little kilt pin brooch. I was thrilled to come away with my own piece of handiwork and feel very proud of it. Having already been given a Silver Clay starter kit as a present I now can't wait to start producing more lovely silver items. Thank you Rachel - I hope to come back and see you again :-)
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you so much for your feedback. So thoughtful of you to take the time. It was an absolute pleasure, you produced some beautiful pieces and I look forward to seeing you again! All the very best. Rach
What an amazing day. Rachel was knowledgeable, patient and good company throughout the day. This was a great way to get an introduction to silver clay crafting and I am definitely hooked! I made several beautiful items to bring home along with moulds to use again. I even have some left over clay and some polishing cloths with my own collection of clay dust for repair work on its way!
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Well done for all your lovely pieces Lynne and thank you so much for taking the time to do a review. I really appreciate it. I had such a lovely day too! Hope the rest of your weekend was lovely. Thanks so much and take care. Rach
What a fantastic day.
I learnt lots of techniques in a wonderful environment and had all the help and support I could ask for from a wonderful lady.
I would not hesitate to recommend this course.
I knew nothing and came away feeling I had achieved a great deal, with two pairs of earrings that I made, and the skill and enthusiasm to want to make more.
Response from Gifted Crafts Company:Thank you for taking the time and your lovely comments. Such a pleasure. Take care. Rach x
