Based on feedback from those attending our beginners silver clay jewellery classes, tutor Anna Campbell has designed this bespoke intermediate level, full-day workshop to cover what people wanted to learn next: how to make silver clay boxes and beads.
On this intermediate level boxes and beads class you will make three pieces:
a shadow box pendant;
a Pandora-style silver wrapped bead; and
a silver lentil bead
We will cover creating box pendants with flat or rounded sides, using moulds to make decorations, designing the front and back of a piece, making bails, as well as different types of unique silver beads.
You will torch fire all your pieces so they are completed, and ready to take home by the end of the workshop.
The class size is kept small to ensure you have plenty of supervised practice, and Anna will also share lots of hints and tips. By the end of the day, you should have the confidence and skill to start making silver boxes and beads from home.
This full-day intermediate workshop is suitable for anyone who has attended a beginner’s silver clay taster or Introduction to silver clay jewellery making workshop, or who has previous experience of working with metal clay.
The introductory price of this workshop includes access to all the equipment you will need, plus all the materials necessary to complete the projects, including 15g of silver clay and a fireable gemstone worth over £30.
You will also be sent full class notes with all the information you need to make pieces at home, including details of where to buy tools and materials.
Note: If you use reading glasses please bring these with you as the class will include some close work.
Please note that The Arienas Collective workshop space is based on the first floor of a Georgian mews house and unfortunately we do not have lift access.
While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Silver Clay Boxes and Beads are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
This course is for those interested in understanding and recognising a range of different mental health condition, including signs and symptoms.
In this playful and sensitive exploration of everyday objects as symbolic communication, metaphors such as a cup half full or treading on eggshells are brought from the page to the stage.
In the workshop we will explore our immediate environment and what we have in it – our home and the virtual space we are in all together.
