Full Event Information

If you have you ever wanted to create a unique piece of jewellery come and enjoy a relaxing day in the Craft Barn creating your very own jewellery from Art Clay Silver. Make some truly original silver jewellery that you can wear home at the end of the day!

Spend the day immersing yourself in learning a new skill with guest tutor Jo Richards of Faye Benjamin Jewellery. This workshop is suitable for beginners and those who wish to progress their skills further by adding a splash of colour after your work is fired.

During the day you will learn how to create your very own textures that can be used over again. Silver Clay can be cut, shaped and textured with ease and with a few techniques, in just one day, you can turn Silver Clay from a squishy little lump into solid silver. It really is amazing and NEW for this workshop, elevate your designs further by adding a splash of colour!

Silver Clay is a wonderful way to create your own unique pendant, charm or drop earrings – depending on the size of your pieces there is usually enough for more than one go! Make a pendant or two, or a pendant and a pair of drop earrings, some people will make bracelet charms – the choice is yours!

The skills you learn in this workshop will enable you to continue creating after you leave. The textures you create are yours to take away. The tutor will have starter kits available to purchase if you wish to make more at home.
