About The Event
About the workshop
Silver clay is a fantastic medium for creating silver jewellery, its versatility allows you to create incredibly intricate patterns with relative ease. Like the name suggests, it's a clay like material that can be shaped just like any other form of clay but when it's fired (with a torch) it becomes solid silver and can even be hallmarked as fine silver (99.9%). This full day workshop allows you plenty of time to really get to grips with the processes and skills you'll learn. As it's such a versatile medium you really can make a range of jewellery, from pendants and charms to earrings, you'll come away with some gorgeous pieces to take home.
Who is it for?
Beginners onwards. Please note that a good level of dexterity and eyesight is required. Over 16s with accompanying adult.
What will I learn?
- Rolling clay to consistent thicknesses - How to shape, cut and texture the clay - How to stamp and hand engrave - Adding multiple layers of clay - Sanding and filing - How to torch fire your jewellery - Polishing, refining and adding different finishes to your silver - How to add clasps and findings to finish your jewellery

What shall I bring?
Reading glasses if you use them, it's very good to be able to see! Also to keep you safe it's best to wear closed toed shoes, tie long hair back and avoid loose flappy clothes :)
