Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop

Emma Mitchell
Tuesday 4 March 2014

Silver clay is an exciting material containing particles of silver, which are recycled from circuit boards inside old electrical appliances. It can be modelled like any ceramic and when fired it turns to fine (99%) silver which can be worn straightaway.

On this one-day workshop Emma will give an overview of the history and chemistry of this very special ceramic and teach you how to handle, cut, mould, add texture, dry, fire and polish it. Using plant material from the Garden you will learn how to make fossil-like pendants and charms, and silicon moulds of seeds or pods to cast in fine silver. Emma will also show you how to imprint the clay with beautiful textures from vintage textiles and buttons and rubber stamps.

All the materials for the day are included in the course fee. During the session you will be able to make up to eight small charms or two or three larger pendants.
