Wanaree Tanner Signature Tools Layered Ornamental Pendant - with Jade Cameron
Thursday, 3rd October 2019
In this intermediate silver clay one-day class you’ll work with the Wanaree Tanner Signature Die Cut Tools to create ornamental elements, which you will combine and laminate to create a beautiful pendant. It’s suitable for anyone who has attended our beginners metal clay class or has previous experience in metal clay and would like to learn some exciting new techniques.
You'll leave with a statement piece that's handmade and designed by you!
The Wanaree Tanner Signature Die Cut Tools allows you to shape and cut stunning, perfectly shaped, decorative elements with ease. These can be used on their own, or as part of a larger piece. In this class Jade will show you how to use the pieces on their own, and how to play around with the shapes to create a final design that is unique to you.
We’ll be working with a small selection of the Die Cut Tools, showing you how even a few design tools can be combined, separated into further decorative parts, and used together in many different ways to create a wide range of different looks - allowing every student a chance to leave with a piece unique to them.
Your tutor for this class will be Jade Cameron, who is one of the first Wanaree Tanner Signature Endorsed Instructors in the UK. Jade has been trained directly by Wanaree Tanner, allowing Wanaree to introduce more people to her wonderful tools and techniques!
Jade is the Studio Manager at Metal Clay Ltd, and runs our regular beginner silver and copper clay classes. Jade is a friendly, thorough, and patient tutor, as well as a jewellery maker supplying our local galleries.

Who is it suitable for?
You need previous experience with metal clay to take this class. You will want to be comfortable working with the clay as this will not be covered and you would not get the most out of the class without a good basic understanding of working with the clay. You’ll be expected to know how to handle the clay, how to roll it out and handling shapes, and storing the clay between working with it; having taken one of our beginner’s classes would be a good start.
It is a small class ensuring you can get full support by your tutor. Ages 16+
Where and when?
This course is 6 1/2 hours long (including a 1/2 hour lunch break).
