Beginners Day Course – suitable for complete beginners so no previous experience necessary. This will be a fun and relaxing day with plenty of time to experiment and be creative. We will begin by looking at how to plan a design, then the basic techniques of rolling and shaping the clay. Most importantly, we will discover how easy it is to fire your finished pieces at home in your own kitchen. We will also cover finishing and polishing. By the end of the day you will have designed and created at least three pieces of jewellery which will be ready to wear home! You will also feel confident to continue working with silver clay on your own at home.
Includes homemade lunch and refreshments
Hello, I’m Melanie Blaikie. My interest in all things shiny and sparkly began at a very early age and for as long as I can remember I’ve enjoyed being creative.
I started my career with what was probably my dream job – Diamond Valuer with DeBeers, London. I continued to become a designer for some of the biggest names in the jewellery world – Asprey, Garrad & Tiffany
I have been teaching silver clay workshops since 2004. I am a qualified Art Clay Instructor and a certified trainer for the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development, so you can relax and know that I will do my utmost to ensure that the time you spend with me is a positive and enjoyable learning experience.
