Service Description

Silver Clay is recycled Silver. Many of the tools and equipment we will use is recycled and re-purposed. So this is the ultimate in recycling - but making brand new silver jewellery! Spend a day learning all about it and making your very own pure silver jewellery which you’ll take home with you that same day. You will make the whole thing yourself as you learn about manipulating the silver, texturing, rolling and cutting. After lunch we will polish and finish the piece so you can go away wearing your creation. What we'll Cover: * What Silver Clay is. * Using household objects as tools. *Different ways of shaping the clay. *Drying and the refining a shape (and erasing any little mistakes) * Ways to add bails and small embellishments to enhance your design. * We'll talk about ways to fire, and of course, we'll fire your pendant. * You'll learn how to polish, finish and patina your piece so you can leave wearing it. Please bring the appropriate glasses, some elements are small and fiddly. It may be useful to bring with your a clear, empty CD case for rolling clay (I have some but not enough for all students). Some tools and equipment is shared between students but all Covid guidelines and procedures will be followed. Its not messy but I don't recommend you wear your Sunday best. Closed toe shoes and tie back long hair. This workshop will be at my Melksham Studio and runs from approximately 10am - 4pm. Further details about parking and lunch will follow in the booking e-mail.
