Description

In this workshop you will make a pendant piece in fine silver using composite techniques (forming individual pieces and then putting them together).  You will discover the process of turning silver clay into a solid piece of fine silver.  You will develop texturing, moulding and finishing skills and create your own original piece to take away.

This workshop will build on skills gained in the introductory workshops, but is also suitable for beginners.  No previous experience is necessary.

Sybil, from Solway Silver is a silver clay artist.  Silver clay is a manufactured product made from tiny particles of pure silver which are suspended in an organic binder.  The piece is formed in clay then fired in a kiln.  During the firing process the binder burns off and the particles of silver sinter into a solid piece.  This piece is 99.9% pure silver.  Sybil comments that, ‘…some sort of magic goes on in the kiln, it’s like alchemy’.  Her work is inspired by the landscapes and wildlife of Dumfries and Galloway.  She has a background in education and enjoys sharing her silver clay techniques through workshops.
