Event Information

Come and create a beautiful gift from 99.9% pure silver. Learn how to design and create your own stunning and unique silver jewellery in an informal and relaxed environment using Precious Metal Clay (PMC). PMC is the most innovative, inspiring and versatile silver medium you can work with. Find out how it is possible to design and create real silver jewellery without the need for expensive equipment or silversmithing skills.

During the workshop you will learn the basic techniques of handling, shaping, texturing, firing and finishing your jewellery to a professional standard. 

Open to all skill levels, no prior experience necessary. You will have plenty of time to make a pendant, earrings or other silver items in a small class of up to six students, which will ensure ample individual attention.  You will go home with at least three pieces (size dependent) of your unique jewellery of commercial quality and ready to wear.

We delivered a workshop to artists and craftspeople based in rural Aberdeenshire. These practitioners had never used digital fabrication technologies before, and were apprehensive about what they would be able to achieve, yet from the beginning of the workshop they were given full support from the staff and quickly became very excited about the possibilities. Each participant produced some fantastic pieces and went away with lots of ideas. The feedback from the workshop speaks for itself: “everything was more than perfect’; ‘finding out how I can use my photography through other mediums is fantastic”; “I was totally taken by the amount of possibilities there…it seems endless and very inspiring.
