To ensure you get good value for money and are taught by an instructor with the skill and experience to offer a structured and indepth course it is wise to check the credentials of those offering courses. My name is Paula and I teach all of our courses personally. I am a qualified PMC Instructor with both Levels 1 and 2 Certification. This is my 18th year teaching courses in metal clay and combined with over 22 years experience producing and selling jewellery (17 years producing Fingerprint Jewellery) which I have created using both traditional silversmithing techniques and metal clays I feel I have the understanding and background knowledge to provide a course that stands out from the rest. Each course is packed full of additional information, tips and tricks used in the jewellery making business including how to make your own sterling silver earring fittings, jumprings and head pins etc. The workshop is purpose built and fully equipped with two Paragon kilns, soldering station and more texture mats and cutters than even I have had the opportunity to use. In fact I'd probably hazard a guess that I've got the best selection of mats and cutters that you are likely to find on any course in the country. I only teach in small groups (minimum 2 maximum 6) so there is ample opportunity for individual attention. Students are encouraged to ask questions and the atmosphere is informal and relaxed.

Courses are structured as a full day run on a Saturday or Sunday from 10am until 5pm with the exception of the Fingerprint Course which is two days. I also offer tuition on a one-to-one basis as weekday sessions of five hours. These sessions are by arrangement so give me a call on 01825 722428 if you are interested.

Here is a list of all the courses that I currently offer. The frequency of which they are run is determined by demand. In addition to the silver clay included in the price, the courses also include the use of all tools and equipment required, a complimentary pair of earring fittings, jumprings and lengths of suede so you can wear all your masterpieces home. In fact all you need to bring with you is your lunch!

Experience Requirements for all Courses except Introduction & Fingerprint:

Students need to have attended a Silver Clay introduction course either with me or at another training centre as the basics will not be covered on the themed courses. This does not apply to the Introduction course or Fingerprint & Keepsake Jewellery course both of which are suitable for all levels. All courses have been structured to ensure new techniques are taught on each one building on the foundation of basics taught on the introduction course. A good working knowledge of the material along with the ability to create bails, perform dry construction and syringe work will be required for all themed courses. Once you have attended a course with Learnsilverclay you will qualify for 5% discount on materials and tools from the webshop (click on the logo in the left hand margin) so don't rush out and buy everything beforehand you could save yourself some money!!

Private Tuition

I also offer tuition on a one-to-one basis as weekday sessions of five hours. These sessions are by arrangement so give me a call on 01825 722428 if you are interested.
