Event description

Description

An Introduction to Silver Clay - One Day Workshop

Price includes 7g of Silver Clay and use of all equipment.

No previous experience required

Learn how to make your own beautiful jewellery using Art Clay Silver. An amazing and versatile material; with just a few simple techniques you can turn Art Clay Silver from a squishy blob of clay into solid silver jewellery that can be hallmarked. Even better – the skills you learn on this course will enable you to continue creating after you leave.

Taught from my own home in a village on the outskirts of Winchester, we will work at a relaxed pace in a small group of no more than 6. There will be plenty of time to explore the material, get tips and advice on Silver Clay and create your own gorgeous pieces of jewellery that are ready to take home by the end of the class.

All tools and equipment will be provided and there will be enough Silver Clay for you to make at least one pendant plus a second pendant, charm or pair of drop earrings, depending on the size and design of your pieces. Please feel free to bring your own chain or bracelets if you want to use those – I can show you how to attach your pieces. Alternatively, there will be a selection of chains, earwires and bracelets for you to buy. Please bring cash if you wish to purchase anything on the day.

Please arrive 9.30-9.45 for a 10am start.

Once your place is confirmed, I will email further details about the day - including location.

Tutor Biography: Jo Richards BA (Hons) in Design & Technology from Southampton University. City and Guilds levels 2 and 3 in Jewellery Design & Silversmithing. Art Clay Diploma levels 1 and 2. Member of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. Owner and founder of Faye Benjamin Jewellery since 2015.

I have been studying, designing, making and selling jewellery for over 20 years. In the last 12 years I've concentrate mainly on working in Art Clay Fine Silver - a recycled silver which can be Assay hallmarked as 99.9% pure silver. It gives me the freedom to make the sort of jewellery I only dreamed of - and I love it!

FAQs

What should I bring to the event?

Glasses, if you need them. A notebook and pen may be handy and an apron (although it's not essential).

Tea, coffee, water and biscuits will be in plentiful supply, but please bring your own lunch and let me know in advance if you have any allergies or dietary requirements.

A word of warning - fluffy clothing is NOT advisable - clay loves fluff!

What if I'm not very 'arty'?

Don't worry, silver clay always works its magic! And I'll be here to guide you with tips, demos and sample pieces every step of the way...

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?

If you are arriving by train or bus, there are good bus links from both Winchester train and bus stations. We are also a short taxi journey from both stations (approximately 10 minutes) and if you are driving there is off-street parking for three cars, and unrestricted parking on the road.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Further details can be found on my website at fayebenjamin.co.uk. If you still have questions, please feel free to email me at jo@fayebenjamin.co.uk or call on 07867 787717.

Is my registration fee or ticket transferable?

You may transfer a ticket to another person for the date you have booked, but please let me know their details in advance.

If you can no longer attend on the date you have booked, you may change to a class on another date, but this is subject to availability and a minimum notice period of 30 days, as per the cancellation policy.

If you are booked on a course and you do not turn up on the day, no refund will be given. I would appreciate if you could please call and let me know if you can't attend or are going to be late on the day - out of respect for your fellow students, and so that we know you are safe.
