You will be welcomed by Sarah or Violeta at 10am and served tea or coffee and by 5pm you will have made your own pendant and small pair of earrings!
Precious Metal Clay (PMC) is a versatile clay like substance with particles of fine silver. The beauty of metal clay is that it can be manipulated in the same way as any modelling clay, but once fired, the binding agents are burnt off leaving the metal form intact. By using metal clay, very fine detail can be achieved, including impressions that would require casting in any other method of metalwork.
This is a great introduction to PMC, the aim of this workshop is to introduce you to the tools used and learn the basic techniques of preparing and handling the clay, shaping, adding texture, firing and finishing your jewellery.
You will have the opportunity to make a textured pendant and small pair of earrings or charms. You will go home pieces of your unique jewellery.
As with all our workshops, materials are provided to purchase on the day. This workshop is suitable for those with no experience or for those who want to come back and work on their own projects.
Materials not included
