This workshop is making a botanical inspired pendant from art clay silver which you will take home with you. Silver clay becomes 99% silver when fired.
Included, 7g of clay (ample for a chunky pendant), an 18 inch sterling silver belcher or box chain, a heavy sterling silver jump ring and gift box. Full tuition and refreshments also included.
In this workshop you will:
Design and make your pendant using a leaf or botanical of your choice, or using one of the many botanicals I will bring.
Learn how to dry the clay then finish the clay by sanding any areas as needed.
Fire your pendant.
Oxidise your pendant with liver of sulpher (optional).
Polish with pro polishing pads.
Final polish with rouge powder.
Drill the hole, add the jump ring.
The workshop starts at 11 on Sunday 26th June and lasts 2 and a half hours. At the craft barn in Hadfield the craftbarnhadfield.co.uk
Introductory cost £49 (regular cost £57)
this is a great price and it would cost more to buy a pendant like this than the cost of the workshop. Max 6 attendees.
Place secured with full payment please.
I will be running more of these, please get in touch with any enquiry.
I am a glossop based silversmith with 18 years experience and will be running a series of workshops using art clay silver. It's a fantastic, versatile, affordable product that is 100% recycled and easy to use. Unlike traditional silversmithing you need very little equipment so the skills you gain in the workshop you can use at home, as the clay is dried in the oven and can be fired on a gas hob and the peice is 99% (or fine) silver. The first workshop will be a botanical pendant like in the first picture. Other photos are items I have made with clay and may be the subject of subsequent workshops. Please like my page if you are interested, I will be posting details soon. Thanks 😊
