Silver metal clay taster course

Textured metal clay


Would you like to make your own fine silver jewellery? This taster workshop will introduce you to the amazing material - silver metal clay.

Metal clay is incredibly easy to work with, can be shaped and textured and once dry can be kiln fired. After a few minutes the clay magically transforms into 99% pure silver. This can then be polished to a sparkly finish. In this three hour class you will learn the basics of metal clay making and will be shown how to make a textured fine silver pendant and matching dangly ear-rings.

A mixture of textures and shapes will be available for you to use. The price includes the use of all equipment, 7g of metal clay, jump rings, a 45cm sterling silver chain and 1 pair of ear-wires. Depending on the thickness you choose for your clay you will be able to make at least one pendant and a pair of ear-rings.

Tea, coffee and biscuits will be available throughout the morning. At the end of the class you will take your completed pieces home.

This is a lovely opportunity to relax and learn a new skill.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 4 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

The price includes the use of all equipment, 7g of metal clay, jump rings, a 45cm sterling silver chain and 1 pair of ear-wires. Tea, coffee and biscuits are also supplied.

I booked Michelle’s Silver Clay Workshop for my sister’s hen do and IT WAS PERFECT! We had a hen group of varied ages and everyone had the best time. Michelle was an excellent host/teacher, made us all feel very welcome, gave easy to follow demonstrations and we all left with some GORGEOUS jewellery. Highly highly recommended - you will not be disappointed! Michelle exceeded all of our expectations and we will be back!

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

It was my absolute pleasure to teach you how to work with metal clay! You were naturals and created such pretty pieces for the wedding! Hope it goes brilliantly and thanks again for choosing me to be part of your Hen do! 😊 xx

A lovely Sunday morning with Michelle and our silver clay! I had no idea I would be able to create something that I would be able to wear but was very proud of my creations - thanks massively to Michelle's patience.
Everything is supplied and so is coffee and biscuits - a lovely mindful way to spend a Sunday Morning!

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

So glad you enjoyed the experience Jo. It was my pleasure to show you the magic of metal clay. 😊
Thanks for leaving such a lovely review!

Really relaxed and fun way to try a new activity. I don't consider myself talented
at all in 'craft' of any sort but I came home with 3 lovely pieces of jewellery that I will be proud to wear and say I made myself. Michelle was happy to help where needed but also let us 'have a go' so that we could learn and try out ideas. I would definitely book another course . I also feel it's good value.

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

Thanks so much for making the journey over to Austrey, Lesley. It was lovely to see you grow in confidence as the session went on. Your pieces were gorgeous - so you should definitely wear them with pride and I'm very glad you feel the course offers good value for money. 😊
I hope to see you again in the future!

Had a fantastic time on the course. I was a bit worried that I might not be able to do it, not having done anything like this before, but Michelle was very welcoming and helped me with my design ideas so that I could create something I really love! Everything you need is supplied, and Michelle took us through the process step by step, with easy to follow instructions and extra support where needed. This course would be great to do with a friend or in a group, but is equally fun to do as an individual, and no need to feel nervous if you're attending on your own like I did. Give it a try!

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

Thanks for your lovely review Emma. I'm so glad you had a lovely time and that we found a way to make your special pendant. It was my pleasure to help you discover the magic of metal clay! 😊

I had such a lovely time on this workshop. I was quite apprehensive beforehand as I’d never done anything like it before. However, Michelle took us slowly step by step through the stages so we were able to produce some lovely jewellery, and was always on hand to help when necessary. Thank you, such a great workshop that I would definitely recommend.

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

Ah Jo, thanks for your lovely review! Your finished pieces were just fab AND you were the jump ring closing champion!! 🤣

Had such a great time. Michelle explains everything really clearly and is there to help if you need it. I love the jewellery I made and it is all the more special because of the memories I have of a lovely afternoon with my sister and sister in law. I would highly recommend and would love to do another workshop in the future. Thanks Michelle.

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

A fabulous morning. I wasn't sure what I would be able to create and wasn't convinced it would be wearable! I was proved wrong. Michelle was an excellent teacher, supporting ideas and giving advice. A truly therapeutic morning. Leaving with a beautiful necklace and earrings set. I was very impressed and would do again. Thank you Michelle 😊

Response from Buttercup Jewellery:

So glad you had a lovely time! I warned you metal clay was addictive!! 😉
