This is an introductory class to the wonders of silver clay. We will show you how to use the clay and fire it to create your own solid silver pieces of jewellery.
Silver clay is a recycled product which when fired becomes solid silver and is Hallmark quality. The best thing is it requires few tools so makes a great new hobby.
On this beginners workshop you will learn how to:
-Cut shapes and create moulds
-Sand , drill and prepare your piece for firing
-Fire and polish your piece
We will follow three main projects – although there is some flexibility:
All pieces will be finished and ready to wear home at the end of the class and you will have the skills to go away and start making your own pieces.
Everything you need for the course,including tea/coffee and cake, is provided. We will have a break for lunch and you are welcome to bring your lunch or go out to one of the local cafes
