About the Event

Silver Clay Jewellery Workshop with Wendy Penrose

Saturday 6th November 2021

10.30am - 4.30pm

Silver clay looks and feels like porcelain clay but, when fired, it becomes 99.9% pure silver. Because you don’t need expensive tools to work with it, you can easily practise what you learn at home. 

Developed in Japan in the 1990’s the clay is made of very fine powdered silver, combined with an organic binder and water. This allows you to roll it out, texture it, cut it and form it in moulds very easily. Once dry the clay is then fired using a small torch which initially burns away the binder leaving just the silver. Heating for a further 3 mins in the flame is sufficient to sinter the atoms of silver together to form a solid piece of metal. This is so pure that it can be hallmarked as Fine Silver. 

The whole process feels like pure Alchemy and the results are beautiful. Included in the price of the class is 10g of metal clay which is sufficient to make a pendant and, with the left over clay, a pair of drop earrings. You will have the choice of one of three options of pendant design all of which will be talked through before you go ahead with the excellent guidance of Wendy.

PLEASE READ THIS BEFORE MAKING A BOOKING WITH US

IF YOU HAVE TO MISS A SESSION

Due to an extremely small admin team, the time it takes up and the financial difficulty it causes the HSA, we are unable to offer refunds / transfers to another session / gift vouchers for orders made in error, changed plans or a changed mind. Please bear this in mind BEFORE placing an order, please don't ask us to make an exception (you'd be surprised how many times this happens).

We are unable to offer refunds / transfers to another session / gift vouchers for forgotten/missed sessions which are the responsibility of the purchaser.

In the extremely rare case where a refund is issued there will be a service charge taken for our time and the payment/booking charges we have incurred.

If it's our fault:

If you're unable to attend the session through a mishap/error on our part, we will make sure you are provided with a voucher to attend any forthcoming sessions of the same type - alternatively we will issue a refund or find another solution.

The income from all our sessions is used to pay for our brilliant tutors, models & photographers, the rent on our studio, overheads and of course to pay the salaries of the hard working folk behind the scenes.
