Silver Clay Taster Class

Designed for you to create lovely, shiny pendants and earrings using your favourite foliage.

  • 85 British pounds
  • Bridgewater Arts and Crafts Centre

Service Description

Silver clay is a crafting medium consisting of very small particles of silver, mixed with an organic binder and water for use in making jewellery, it can be shaped just like any soft clay, by hand or using moulds, this is then dried out and fired to create a silver which is of a good enough standard to be hallmarked as fine silver. This is a 3 1/2 - 4 hour class designed for you to create lovely, shiny pendants and earrings using your favourite foliage to create gorgeous textures and patterns. Using foliage gathered from your favourite spots, maybe your garden, from along a regular dog walk, your local park or anywhere that means something to you. There will also be a huge range of texture plates and moulds available on the day to help create your pieces if you would prefer to go for maybe a more contemporary design, there is lots to help you create individual pieces on the day, and guidance on creating your own personal design. Depending on the size of the pieces that you want to make, there is enough silver clay included in the price to make a large pendant, or a smaller pendant and a pair of small matching earrings. Sterling silver wire will be included in the course materials to enable you to make earring wires for earrings, and for jump rings for the pendant, as well a silver chain. This course is not suitable for children under 16 years and anyone under the age of 18 years need to be accompanied by an adult also attending the course.
