Event description

Description

Silver Clay is an amazing new form of real silver but rather than being a hard metal, is soft and pliable - like clay! For the first time, this incredible material makes it possible for anyone to design and create real silver jewellery without the fuss and expense of traditional silversmithing techniques.

This beginners day will take you through the basic techniques of planning, designing, creating and finishing your own unique jewellery designs. On the day, you can expect to make two or three finished pieces such as a pair of earrings and a necklace or charms for a bracelet and a brooch.

The day will be full of clear explanations and demonstrations to help you. You will learn how easy it is to fire the silver at home - you don't need a kiln - and to finish your pieces to a professional standard. Most of all, it will be a fun and relaxing day with lots of time to experiment and be creative. You will leave not only wearing your sparkly new jewels but feeling confident to continue making jewellery with silver clay at home.

Cost for the day includes silver for your projects, use of all tools and equipment, class notes, teas & coffees.

Any questions about the day? Ask Melanie direct info@silverclayworkshop.co.uk
