What you will do
3 hour workshop
Learn to create a perfect replica of a real leaf in delicate solid silver to make earrings, pendants and charms. As unique as nature is, each piece will be completely unique to you.
Choose a leaf from a selection provided or bring a few along with you. If bringing your own leaves, please bring a variety as some leaves may not be suitable. It is ideal to look for leaves that have veins and detail on the back for example Oak, Beech, Strawberry, Maple etc. Unsuitable leaves are ones with a smooth, waxy or furry surface for example Ivy, Holly, Tomato. All leaves must be alive and not dried.
The best part is that, after the workshop, you can easily replicate this workshop at home to make beautiful gifts.
Skills taught :: Working with PMC Silver Clay, firing silver clay, burnishing, finishing techniques
** All tools are provided except for the silver. The silver required to make your jewellery can be bought on the day, payment by cash or cheque. Material cost is based on weight of your finished pieces. You are able to make as many leaves as time allows. As a rough guide approximately £3 of silver is required for a small leaf to £10 for a large leaf.
