Description

Learn to make your own beautiful fine silver jewellery from Art clay silver, at my studio in Newcastle upon Tyne. No previous experience is necessary! From my home studio I can offer workshops for up to 3 people with classes are kept small so I am able to give each attendee my full attention. By the end of my course you will have some beautiful jewellery to take home. I will teach you the following: Rolling & cutting Texturing Layering Pre fire finishing Post fire finishing Burnishing Polishing Oxidising to create ‘antiquing’ I have been making jewellery from metal clay for a few years now. I completed a year long course at the London Jewellery School in September 2015 resulting in a Diploma in Creative Jewellery which included learning many techniques using silver clay. Other skills include fused glass, resin, perspex, enamelling and silversmithing. I also attended an intensive 3 day course with Tracey Spurgin at Craftworx in Beverley, which enabled me to demonstrate different skills and techniques in working with silver clay. This resulted in me achieving Art Clay Silver Level 1 Diploma (ACWUK) in April 2016, which qualifies me to teach basic silver clay classes. ‭ I subsequently embarked on a ring making workshop with Natalia Coleman. Recently I was very proud to be presented with the North Tyneside Business of the Month award – kindly voted by my customers and reflecting some very kind feedback from people who have completed a course with me. Silver clay when fired, which can be done using an inexpensive torch at home, results in 99.9% fine silver pieces. At the end of the course you will have a great understanding of silver clay and be able to take what you made away with you to impress your family and friends. In the unlikely event that I have to cancel a course at short notice you will be offered an alternative date or a full refund. Please note this is not suitable for children under the age of 16.
