Silver Clay is a truly remarkable product. It consists of particles of pure silver, binding agent and water (It looks and feels much like ordinary sculpting clay). It can be

*Shaped, pinched, cut, twisted and rolled out by hand

*Carved and engraved with a range of tools

*Extruded through syringes

*Used in rubber moulds

*Imprinted with leaves, bark, shells Etc

*Shaped into beads, small vessels and sculptures

The clay is then refined. dried and fired. During firing the binder burns out and leaves you with a pure silver piece - which can be hallmarked 999.

This workshop is one of our most popular, and is suitable for those who are new to metal clay as well as those who have some experience. You can choose to make several charms for earrings or pendants or take your skills to the next level with a more challenging project like a hollow form such as a lentil bead. 

Whatever you decide to make you'll be guided through every step by our experienced tutor, and you will be taking home new skills at the end of the day for you to use in future. You'll learn how to

* Handle and texture the clay

* How to set CZ gemstones

* How to fire the clay with a hand held jewellers torch & Kiln

*How to give your finished piece a professional finish….. and much, much more!  

The price includes tuition & 15g of silver clay (which is worth £30). Tea & coffee are provided. We will take a break for lunch - there is a cafe and bar onsite though you are welcome to bring your own packed lunch. Come along and discover this fantastic material!!
