About the Course
Silver metal clay is an amazing material! Made from recycled silver, mixed with organic binders and moisture, it can be textured, shaped, cut and moulded like clay, but, when it's fired, it reverts to become 99.9% fine silver again. This means that you don't need any prior jewellery making or silversmithing skills to enjoy this media and make beautiful, fine silver jewellery pieces!
If you’re new to the magic of silver clay and want to learn lots of skills, techniques and tips in one concentrated burst, then this is the course for you. This weekend workshop will take you from no knowledge to confident maker and immerse you in all things silver clay for an amazing two days!
You will learn how to prepare and work with the clay, how to make pendants, earrings and a ring and how to work with lump, paste and syringe clays. You’ll have pieces fired in the kiln as well as being able to fire your work with a torch so you can continue working at home easily. You’ll learn how to achieve a beautiful shine to your work and how to add a patina to your pieces.
This workshop is suitable for those aged 16+.
