What is the course about?
This Silver Clay one day course will take you through the whole process of how to work with the clay from opening the packet, creating and firing to polishing your finished piece. I will show you how to prepare your work station and talk through the tools and equipment you will need to continue your new skill at home.
There will only be time to make one item, either a pendant or a pair of earrings, depending on how quickly you work. We will not be making rings as this is a very different method of working
