Project one - silver earrings

This is the workshop for you if you would like to spend a fun day learning how to use silver clay to make hallmark quality jewellery from home. You will learn how to work with the clay, texture it, make your own moulds and set a gemstone. You will leave the class with at least three pieces of jewellery and the knowledge to make your own designs at home.

If you don't have pierced ears you can make a pendant, silver buttons or stacked initials







Project two - make your own silicone mould and silver charm

Project three - setting a gemstone in a silver pendant

Workshop description

In this one-day workshop, suitable for beginners or those that have taken the taster course, you will learn how to make three different projects out of 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 will take you through all the steps to create your own pieces ready for firing. The dried clay is fired with a butane torch to form it into silver, a creme brule torch will do!

The projects you will make during this one-day workshop are - 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, buttons etc 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 creations to give as gifts or to keep for yourself!

The course was very relaxed, well presented and well organised. Anna demonstrated how to make a variety of pieces and her instructions were clear and explicit. Questions were welcomed and answered clearly and succinctly.
Everyone relaxed over an amazing lunch, organised by Lynn's husband, thanks go to him.
I learned a great deal about Silver and Silver Clay and I am delighted with the jewellery I made.
I have already recommended and given details of the course to a friend.
I look forward to another course.

5 stars

Very well presented course with all materials that are needed provided as part of it. We all made several items, Anna was extremely helpful and explained everything very clearly. Notes were made available to us afterwards to save us writing things down, and all questions were answered clearly.

The location is fabulous, a really beautiful setting that was relaxing and comfortable all day. The refreshments were extremely good, lunch was fabulous and way more than I had expected being included in the price.

Strongly recommend, and will be looking for other courses by the Arienas Collective myself!
