Silver jewellery course for beginners in Exeter

Description

Learn to use silver clay to make unique jewellery on this half day introductory silver metal clay workshop in Exeter.

Metals clay is fine metal powder mixed with a binder to create malleable clay that can be moulded, textured, rolled and cut out. The clay is then dried before being fired with a torch (which can be done using an inexpensive torch at home) or with a kiln to produce a solid piece of metal. We will be demonstrating firing with a torch so you know what you can achieve in a home environment.

You will learn how to roll & cut precious silver clay, add textures, layering, drying and torch-firing, finishing pre and post firing including burnishing, polishing and adding a patina to the surface of the silver.
Fired silver clay results in 99.9% fine silver pieces, which you can send for hall-marking at a UK assay office if you wanted to as it is fine enough silver to do so.

On this course, during 4 hours you can create your own project. You can make 2 - 3 pieces of jewellery.

Please get in touch for more details.

I made a ring for the first time, which i thought wasn't going to be possible but it was! 😁 can't wait to get started myself. Thankyou Anna xxx

Anna is a friendly and helpful teacher. It is best to plan only one or two pieces. I made three but had to finish them off at home and was only able to make them in the time as Anna went over the booked time. Generous.

Response from Silver Jewellery Art:

Hi James, thank you for the positive summary of my course. You turned out to be a gifted student who I enjoyed working with.

Response from Silver Jewellery Art:

Hallo Karen, thank you very much for such nice opinion. You are a very talented person and I just helped you prove yourself in a new field.
