Flexible Reschedule Policy: This provider has flexible, free rescheduling for any-in person workshop. Please see the cancellation policy for more details

What you'll learn in this clay class:

Precious metal clay, or silver clay, is made of pure silver mixed with water and an organic binding agent. You can mold it into an endless number of shapes and designs. When fired, the binding agent burns off, resulting in original fine silver jewelry—99.9% pure.

Learn the basics of how to work with silver clay in our introductory workshop. This 3 hour session covers rolling, stamping, and other methods of creating texture and all the finishing techniques you will need. Pieces will be fired during the workshop, so you can wear your creation home that day.

The price of the workshop is $90 (cost of clay not included but can be purchased upon arrival at the studio). Precious metal clay can be purchased at La Mano ($50 for 15g and $75 for 25g packet).

Question from Anonymous
Can silver clay be placed in an oven or does it require a special firing machine?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Silver clay cannot be placed in an oven. It has to be in a kiln to fire at a certain temperature. The school has the kilns there, to fire it for the students. Hope this helps!

Silver Clay Workshop
Reviewed by MARIANNA B. on 2/17/2020
What a beautiful place! I was definitely impressed! Today I took the Precious Metal Clay class with Amy and I loved it! Amy is very organized, and explains and demonstrates everything so well- there is no way you can't learn from her. She rocks!
Silver Clay Workshop
Reviewed by Jacqueline D. on 11/20/2019
The silver clay workshop with Amy was very informative and fun. I was able to make a beautiful pendant and have already received several compliments on it! Working with the silver clay was a new experience for me, and I would like to do it again. The class is the perfect length to make something nice. I would recommend this class to anyone who wants to learn the basics of silver clay and make something nice on their very first try. Amy, the instructor, was really nice and took her time to answer questions and help each class member individually with his or her project.

Really interesting class--learned a lot and loved the end project I got to take home with me, as well as what everyone else in the class made. The teacher was great too, I'd definitely go back for another class and would recommend it to others.
Silver Clay Workshop
Reviewed by Rebecca S. on 9/10/2019
The class was great and I walked away with a piece that I was really happy with, despite never having touched silver or polymer clay before! The 'making' portion was quite rushed, so I'd recommend to the instructor to spend less time on the upfront demo and more hands-on time helping students design and make their projects. All of us in the class were surprised by the materials fee. I thought I had read the description of the class more than once to see whether it was mentioned, and I missed it. I'm still glad I took the class, but I'd recommend making that a bit more prominent in the description and mentioning the cost so students don't feel misled.

I enjoyed the class tremendously Amy was excellent and very informative and knew exactly what she was talking about and knows her trade very well and I will be coming back for second class I can’t wait to get started again I loved it
