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).
