This full-day intermediate workshop is suitable for anyone who has attended the beginners Silver clay taster or Introduction to silver clay jewellery workshops, or has experience of working with metal clay.

On this workshop, taught by Edinburgh jeweller and silver clay specialist Anna Campbell, you will learn the traditional skill of soldering to advance your jewellery making skills in order to make different types of jewellery including stud earrings and cufflinks.

This is the perfect follow-on to the beginners workshops, and has been requested by our participants! It’s also the right workshop for you if you want to make jewellery to sell, or simply wish to make unique pieces for yourself, or as gifts for friends.

We will begin by designing and making stud earrings, cufflinks and a pendant out of silver clay. This part serves as a good recap on what you’ve learnt previously. We will spend the majority of our time focussing on the skill of soldering. You will learn:

How to solder earring posts onto earrings to make studs
How to solder silver cufflink backs onto your silver clay pieces
How to solder a jump ring onto a pendant (instead of drilling a hole)
Loads of practical hints and tips

We will cover two different types of soldering, talk about the equipment and materials you need (not much more than for working with silver clay), troubleshooting and more. You will have plenty of supervised practice, and by the end of the day you should have the confidence and skills you need to start making soldered silver clay jewellery at home.

Additional items will be available to buy from Anna on the day for those who want to get started straight away at home! And detailed notes of the workshop with all the information you need to remember to get going will be emailed to you afterwards.

The price includes all materials (including 10g of silver clay, a pair of sterling silver cufflinks, a pair of stud earrings and butterflies, which alone are worth over £30), refreshments and lunch. And of course you get to take home all the unique jewellery you create!

Please note that The Arienas Collective workshop space is based on the first floor of our Georgian mews house and unfortunately we do not have lift access.

Additional Dates: 15 October 2020

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Soldering Silver Clay Jewellery Class are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
