Exploring Silver Clay: Full day class: Sunday 16 October 11am-5:30pm

These great full-day classes allow students the time and freedom to really explore the potential of Silver Clay.

We will teach you the differences between the three frequently used types of clay – lump form, syringe and paste. You’ll also learn how to handle the clay, condition it, shape and form it, dry it, prepare it for firing, how to fire and how to polish.

Our instructor Emma Baird will also show you how to torch fire your pieces, as well as how to fire them in a kiln.

The most exciting part of this course is that you have the whole day and 20g of clay to truly explore the potential of this wonderful material. Make charms or pendants, or get to grips with snake rolling and the syringe, or even make a hollow bead like the one in the photo!

You can experiment with textured pieces, non-textured pieces embellished with the syringe and even add sparkle with gemstones. As ever, there will be a wide variety of projects on hand to inspire you!

Whether you are new to Silver Clay, or have a little experience you will receive expert guidance from our Award Winning Artist and Instructor – Emma Baird.

Suitable for beginners as well as those with experience, this fantastic course is running on Sunday 16th October from 11am – 5:30pm and costs £120 which includes 20g Art Clay Silver, CZ’s, use of a syringe, use of paste, tuition and a loan of all tools. There will also be unlimited tea and coffee and biscuits available through out the day.
