Introduction to Silver Clay [Beginners]

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until October 13, 2019
Learn to make your own beautiful fine silver jewellery from Art clay silver – no previous experience is necessary.
Silver clay is one of a range of metal clays. All metals clays are fine metal powder mixed with a binder to create malleable clay that can be moulded, textured, rolled and cut out. The clay is then dried before being fired with a torch (which can be done using an inexpensive torch at home) or with a kiln to produce a solid piece of metal. We will be demonstrating firing with a torch so you know what you can achieve in a home environment.
Silver clay when fired, results in 99.9% fine silver pieces, which you can send for hall-marking at a UK assay office if you wanted to as it is fine enough silver to do so.
