Clay Works


Silver clay is a thrilling and versatile medium that transforms from soft and workable into fine silver jewelry through kiln firing. Learn the basics of shaping, firing and finishing silver clay in this introductory workshop. This one weekend class will be in two parts – Saturday will cover texturing, forming and prepping work for the kiln. After work is fired, students will return Sunday to learn and apply finishing techniques. Cost includes a comprehensive silver clay starter tool kit and one pack of clay (value $70). Additional clay and jewelry findings will be available for purchase in class. This class is ideal if you are intending to continue experimenting afterward with silver clay. (Our D.I.Y. Silver Jewelry, page 9, does not include the tool kit and may be right for you if you are interested in a one-time silver jewelry experience.) Please bring lunch Saturday.

Non-member price: $190, Member price: $178
