Learn how to make jewellery out of Precious Metal Clay (PMC) in this unique hands-on Sydney class. You will take home finished pieces of fine silver, including a pendant and earrings or a large bead.

This class is designed for everyone including beginners, as an experienced instructor will guide you through the whole design process and you will be introduced to various techniques that will allow you to bring your creative ideas to life.

In this practical workshop, you will learn:

  • Proper handling of PMC
  • Rolling
  • Shaping/moulding
  • Texturing
  • Hole making
  • Sanding/filing
  • Torch firing
  • Polishing

This will allow you to create a simple pendant and earrings or a large bead to take home.

By the end of the jewellery making workshop, you will also take home an array of new knowledge and skills such as:

  • Knowledge of PMC and an understanding of its capabilities
  • An understanding of basic tools
  • Correct safety procedures
  • Knowledge of various artistic methods that can be employed with PMC
  • The advantages and disadvantages of PMC compared with working with traditional silversmithing techniques
  • How to produce different jewellery pieces in PMC

(Dependant upon time, skill level and complexity of student’s design.)
