Join us for a fun and creative evening designing your own silver pendant piece with a gemstone.
Part of a series of evening workshops – discount applied if booking four or more at once and if you are taking more than one workshop Sybil will discuss individual project options with you that can run over a few weeks.
Silver clay is made from very tiny particles of silver which are suspended in an organic binder. The piece is formed in clay and then fired in a kiln. During the firing process the binder burns off and the particles of silver sinter into a solid piece. This piece is 99.9% pure silver and it can be hallmarked at an assay office as fine silver, 999.
You will use rolling and texturing techniques to form your piece. A gemstone can be added to use colour in your design. It will be fired during the workshop then we will look at polishing and finishing techniques and you will have a completed piece to take away with you.
There will be an additional cost of £20.00 for your silver and other materials, payable to the tutor.
This can be a standalone however if you are taking more than one workshop Sybil will discuss individual project options with you.
