In this workshop, participants will design and create their own original piece of fine silver jewellery using precious metal clay. Participants will begin by sketching and creating the texture to be used with the clay for a small bracelet or necklace* charm. Once your creation has been molded Adults** will learn how to use a torch to fire their piece.
Following firing the class will take a break for the pieces to be tumbled which is the final step (approx. 1 hour during scheduled class time, you are welcome to leave and shop or grab a snack along Victoria Street). After the break everyone can come back to pick up their finished pieces.
This is a wonderful opportunity to create a special one-of-a kind present for someone or yourself!
Please register early as this class has a limited number of participants
**While this class is open to ages 10+ no participant under the age of 18 will be allowed to fire their own piece. Firing for underage participants will be done by the instructor. If you want an underage participant to fire their own piece a parent/guardian must sign a waiver. Please contact Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org if you require this form.
*In this workshop participants will make a charm. Necklace chains are not included in the cost, but will be available for purchase for those interested.
Time: Depending on the final registration numbers and time required to fire the pieces this class will end between 5pm and 5:30pm.
