Introduction to Silver Clay Jewellery-Making

About Introduction to Silver Clay Jewellery-Making

On this one-day introductory workshop - suitable for beginners or those that have attended our silver jewellery taster workshop and wish to develop their skills - you will create three different pieces of jewellery.

Using silver clay, a material made up of recycled silver particles, an organic binder and water that can easily be used at home with little need for equipment, your expert tutor, Edinburgh-based jeweller Anna Campbell, will take you through all the steps needed to create your own pieces ready for firing. The dried clay is fired with a butane torch to form it into silver (at home a crème brulé torch will also do the job). The resulting pieces are silver of hallmark quality - modern-day alchemy!

The projects you will make during this one-day workshop include a pair of earrings, a stone-set pendant and a moulded charm. You will learn how to make your own silicone mould to use with silver clay so if you have any small charms, shells, buttons and so on you would like to bring along to mould please do! If not, a selection will be provided for you to choose from.

You will learn how to design, make and fire your own pieces and will go home with your lovely, truly hand made and unique creations to give as gifts or to keep for yourself!

You will have access to all the equipment you need, and the price includes all materials, welcome refreshments and a buffet style lunch.

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