An Introduction to Metal Clay - One Day Workshop
No previous experience required
Price includes 7g of Silver Clay and use of all equipment
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 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.

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!
