During this course you will receive both group and individual support in experimenting with PMC, silver clay, as a medium from which to make a piece of unique and delightful jewellery.
Art Clay Silver is a precious metal clay which looks and feels like ordinary sculpting or porcelain clay, with fine particles of pure silver mixed with a non-toxic organic binder. When fired the binder burns out leaving a fine silver piece, which can be hallmarked as fine silver.
Using pre-formed moulds, or creating your own textures, directly onto the silver clay, using cutters, you will learn how to create your own design.
Please bear in mind for safety reasons, please do not wear long draped sleeves, or anything with a bow at the neck and your hair must be tied up if is long. All of this to maintain safety when firing and sintering the clay. No open toed shoes.
All our courses are made up of elements of speaking & listening, reading and writing, and you will work using these elements throughout the course.
Some of the skills you gain on this course could help increase your opportunities for employment or working within the community. Learning takes place in a friendly classroom setting, which is a great place for social interaction and helping you meet new people.
This course is subsidised by Government funding so you should aim to attend the whole course.
