Silver Ring Making Workshop
Learn to make your own beautiful fine silver leaf ring from Art clay silver, at my studio in Newcastle upon Tyne.
It would be helpful if you have some experience of working with silver clay by taking my Beginners Silver Clay Workshop first, but it’s not essential.
I will teach you the following:
Rolling & cutting
Use of mould or textured mat
Pre fire finishing
Post fire finishing
Oxidising to create ‘antiquing’
What’s included in a 3 hour workshop?
All the silver clay required to make the project
Use of required equipment including kiln
Lots of tea/coffee and cake!
At the end of the course you will have a great understanding of silver clay and be able to take what you made away with you to impress your family and friends.
I have been making jewellery from metal clay for a number of years. I completed a year long course at the London Jewellery School in September 2015 resulting in a Diploma in Creative Jewellery which included learning many techniques using silver clay. Other skills I have obtained are fused glass, resin, perspex, enamelling and silversmithing. I also attended an intensive 3 day course with Tracey Spurgin at Craftworx in Beverley, which enabled me to demonstrate different skills and techniques in working with silver clay. This resulted in me achieving Art Clay Silver Level 1 Diploma (ACWUK) in April 2016, which qualifies me to teach basic silver clay classes. I subsequently embarked on a ring making workshop with Natalia Coleman. Recently I was very proud to be presented with the North Tyneside Business of the Month award – kindly voted by my customers and reflecting some very kind feedback from people who have completed a course with me.
Silver clay when fired, which can be done using an inexpensive torch at home, results in 99.9% fine silver pieces. By the end of my course you will have some beautiful jewellery to take home.I offer one-to-one workshops.
