The Advanced Workshop - (9.45am – 5:30pm) - £135.00
Above are just a few examples of what can be achieved during an Advanced Workshop. These workshops are for people who have had previous experience with Silver Clay or have attended either my Silver Taster Half Day or my Silver Jewellery Experience Day. Its about expanding skills and learning to bezel set stones and glass in the Silver Clay and work in 3D to a high standard. This workshop includes a total of 14g of silver clay/paste/syringe but as with any of my of my workshops, you can purchase more Silver Clay if needed.
This day is designed for customers who wish to expand their skills and learn new techniques to produce more detailed pieces of jewellery including hollow-form syringe work (pendant or earrings) or reproducing a leaf using silver clay paste or creating a beautiful dichroic glass and silver pendant (a choice of a dichroic glass cabouchon or semi precious stone is included in your day) Refreshments are available throughout the day but you will need to bring a packed lunch with you or pop out to the village shop only a short drive/stroll away. After lunch we will prepare for the exciting and final stages of polishing and finishing your pieces. All findings are provided to create unique detailed finished pieces to take home with you, beautifully gift packaged.
If you are interested in this day then you can book onto the Silver Experience Day. The additional cost covers the additional silver, your choice of a stone/dichroic cabouchon for setting and generally involves a second kiln firing later in the day so you can stay on a little longer after the Experience Day customers to finish your pieces to a high standard. Timing really does depend on the complexity of your pieces.
