* All of my jewellery workshops are limited to 6 people due to the time sensitive nature of the materials we use, and all participants will be working 2 metres apart with individual tools and materials.*
In this three hour workshop, you will be taught the basics of working with silver clay with demonstrations and tips for successful jewellery making in the beautiful setting of Hitchin Lavender in Hertfordshire. You will be taught how to roll the clay, impress a design using molds of handpicked Hitchin Lavender and other nature based molds, cut, fire and finish your own .999 fine silver pendant which will be ready to take home at the end of the workshop.
I am a qualified teacher with over 15 years experience and have been teaching silver clay workshops for 7 years. My work is inspired by natural forms; mainly flowers, foliage and the seaside.
Participants should be over 16 due to the equipment used in this process. However I am happy to accept participants aged 14-15 as long as they are accompanied by a parent/guardian.
Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.
7 grams of silver clay and jump rings.
There is an option to purchase sterling silver ear wires and box chain necklaces on the day.
3 hours (10:00am to 1:00pm)

I loved this workshop. Tuuli was a very informative teacher & helped everyone equally. She clearly has a passion for what she does. I’m looking forward to going on more workshops with Tuuli in the future.
Response from Tuuli Parker:Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback Suzanne. It is greatly appreciated.
I found this course so interesting. I would highly recommend attending. I enjoyed every aspect and being able to design and create your own piece and take it home that day was amazing. Thank you so much.
Response from Tuuli Parker:I'm so pleased to hear that you enjoyed the workshop. Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review - it is greatly appreciated!
Really well organised, and all the necessary equipment was provided. Pitched at an appropriate level - perfect for beginners and with room to experiment for those who are more confident at using the material. Tuuli was friendly and encouraging. It was lovely to be able to take wearable jewellery home.

An interesting, well run workshop. It was fascinating to see the variety of pieces that the group made. Tuuli is an enthusiastic and inspirational tutor with clear instruction. A very enjoyable evening.
