Intro to Silver Clay Jewellery

Intro to Silver Clay Jewellery

Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop

Details

Silver Clay is a fabulous medium for making just about anything, from the simplest piece to the most intricate patterns. It is the versatility of silver clay that makes it so popular and accessible to create pieces without the need for intricate techniques or tools.
You can knead it, roll it, beat it, stretch it, texture it, fold it or anything else really.

There's a lot of freedom in forming jewellery from Silver Clay and so there is less emphasis on the traditional jewellery making skills. Being made of silver particles the material is not cheap by any means and sometimes commands a higher price than mined silver. Jo, who runs her own Silver jewellery business called Silver Forge in the South Lakes, will guide you through the basics to help you get the best from your silver clay.

All tools and equipment are provided, just bring your imagination!

We will send maps etc on booking confirmation. We have 2 parking spaces reserved for those unable to walk this distance, please let us know. Drop off of students or materials is fine.
