Silver Clay Beginners Course
Saturday, 28 January 2017
10am - 4:30pm
Come spend the day with us, discovering the magic of metal clay - you can even wear your finished pieces proudly as you leave!
Using silver clay you can, in a few easy steps, create your own fine silver handmade jewellery or decorations, using tools you probably already have at home. Silver clay truly is magical, you’ll take a squidgy lump of grey dull-looking clay and with a few steps you’ll see it transform into solid, sparkling, real fine silver.
In this beginner course we’ll show you some basic techniques for:
- handling the clay
- shaping and forming the clay
- drying and refining your piece
- firing silver clay
- finishing and polishing silver
We'll also cover one or two additional techniques that could include: mould making, syringe work, stone setting, bail making, etc.We’ll be your guide into the magical world of metal clay, and we'll take you through the steps needed to successfully complete 3-4 pieces by the end of the day. After this course you should feel comfortable working with the metal clay on your own.
This class can be taken with absolutely no experience of jewellery making or silver clay - it is relaxed and fun, and is ideal for complete beginners. Ages 16+
Beginner courses are 6 1/2 hours long (including a 1/2 hour lunch break)
