In this workshop, suitable for beginners, you will learn how to make your own bespoke pieces 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. I 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. You’ll then polish your silver pieces ready to take home.
This is an excellent taster class to give you an idea of the possibilities of this unique material and helps you cross some people off your christmas to do list. And why not bring along a friend or two? It's a great alternative to a christmas night out!
The course includes 5g of silver clay which is enough to make three silver pendants, a set of 8 christmas pudding charms. More clay will be available to purchase on the day if you want to go all out!
