Description

This half-day workshop will introduce you to magic of silver clay through designing and making your own pendant or pair of earrings.

What will I learn?

During the class, you’ll learn how to:

  • Roll out and texture the clay
  • Cut or punch holes into the clay
  • Dry and refine your work
  • Firing the pieces
  • Polish and finish your design

The cost of the workshop includes 10g of fine silver clay (which is enough to make a pendant or pair of drop earrings), a chain or pair of ear wires.

Silver clay is made of microscopic silver particles combined with water and an organic binder.  Silver clay can be shaped by hand or by using moulds and cutters.  It can also be intricately patterned by pressing a textured surface, or hand carving, into the soft clay.  After drying and hand finishing, the clay is fired to burn away the clay binder and fuse the tiny silver particles back together to form a solid silver piece which is then hand-polished.

What do I need to bring?

The cost of the workshop covers tuition and all materials required as well as tea, coffee, soft drinks etc.

Don’t forget your reading glasses if you need them as there is a lot of close up work!

What should I wear?

Due to the nature of the tools and materials used in the class you are required to wear sturdy, closed toed shoes.  Hair must be tied back and please do not wear loose clothing or scarves; you may not want to get your nails done before the session! Aprons are provided.
