Introduction to Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop


Introduction to Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop

No previous experience required

Join Jo Richards, and learn how to make your own beautiful jewellery using Art Clay Silver. With just a few simple techniques, you can turn Art Clay Silver from a squishy blob of clay into solid silver jewellery that could be hallmarked. Even better – the skills you learn on this course will enable you to continue creating after you leave.

What is included:

  • Expert guidance from a tutor with over 15 years experience
  • Morning Tea & coffee
  • Class notes
  • Exclusive student discount voucher

*Cost Of Materials: There is an additional charge of £18 for materials that is payable by cash or card on the day. This includes:

  • 7g of silver, which is enough Silver Clay for you to make at least one pendant plus a charm or pair of drop earrings, depending on the size and design of your pieces
  • A Faye Benjamin gift bag to store your precious creations
  • A branded goodie bag to take home with you
  • Chains, ear wires and bracelets may also be purchased on the day for an additional charge.

What you will learn:

  • Design ideas and considerations
  • Introduction to tools and equipment
  • How to roll, cut and texture clay
  • Drying, sanding and refining
  • Firing
  • Polishing and finishing
  • How to attach jump rings and earwires

We will work at a relaxed pace in a small group of no more than 8. There will be plenty of time to explore the material, get tips and advice on Silver Clay and create your own gorgeous pieces!

Please feel free to bring your own chain or bracelets if you want to use. Alternatively, there will be a selection of chains for you to buy.


What should I bring to the event?

  • A notebook and pen if you wish to take additional notes.
  • An apron (although not essential).
  • Our Tea room is available to purchase light lunches, or feel free to bring a picnic to enjoy in the garden.
  • A word of warning – fluffy clothing is NOT advisable – clay loves fluff!

What if I’m not very ‘arty’?

Don’t worry, silver clay always works its magic! And Jo will be here to guide you with tips, demos and sample pieces every step of the way…
