Precious metal clay, or PMC as it is often called, is made up of fine silver particles, a binder and water. The clay can be molded like any type of clay. It is then fired with a torch or a kiln which burns away the binder leaving a piece of silver.

This course is an excellent introduction to the creative use of Precious Metal Clay. The course is suitable for all levels it is designed to enable not only complete beginners to produce a piece of jewellery but also demonstrate the interesting properties of PMC to those with advanced knowledge of jewellery making.

During this course we will focus on a particular aspect of PMC – its ability to be fused onto wire structures to create whole pieces without the need for soldering. Using simple wire forming techniques you will construct sections for jewellery to which you will then add PMC. Once fired the pieces will be finished using simple techniques such as burnishing and patination.

Precious Metal Clay lends itself to organic forms and textures and so we will be using nature as the inspiration for your pieces but you are encouraged to explore and develop your own ideas.

We’ll provide everything you’ll need including tools, silver wire and 10g of silver clay. Extra silver can be purchased (at cost price) from the School. Please bring along glasses if you need them and wear appropriate clothing for a studio environment including closed toe shoes. If you have long hair please wear it up.

LEVEL: SUITABLE FOR ALL

A subject focused course that is delivered to suit any level of experience from beginner to advanced practitioner. A structured start is followed by guided independent practice.
