On this evening class you will have the opportunity to make a piece of jewellery from silver clay.
Silver clay is relatively new to the world of jewellery making, introduced by Mitsubishi in the early 90s. It is made from tiny particles of reclaimed and recycled silver which are mixed with a non toxic organic binder. The clay can be rolled, textured, moulded and carved. During firing, the binder burns away and the silver particles sinter so you are left with a beautiful piece of solid silver. There are so many possibilities to create some beautiful jewellery.
In your full day class you will learn some of the basic techniques needed to create silver clay jewellery and shown how to use the required tools in the workshop.
The class fees includes materials (10g silver clay, a chain for a pendant and some ear wires for earrings), if you wish to make more on the day you can purchase extras in the class.
Your tutor, Dawn Rowbotham of Lillybank Silver, is an experienced silver clay jeweller with a wealth of knowledge.
On booking, you will receive an email with all the information you need for the day. (Including how to get here and how to contact your tutor).
Please note, this class could be postponed if not enough people are registered to attend (at least 2 people). You will be offered a refund or a place on a future date if this is the case.
