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!

On this fun and relaxed workshop, you’ll learn how to measure and size your ring correctly, allowing for clay shrinkage; how to prepare the mandrel to take your clay and how to make a seamless ring shank whilst incorporating your design ideas. You’ll be able to add surface decoration and other silver embellishments to your heart's content!

Once you’ve refined your ring, we will kiln fire it for maximum strength ready for you to polish and patina if you wish.

This workshop is suitable for those aged 16+.
