Baltic Shop Creates: Silverclay Jewellery

Baltic Centre for Contemporary Art, Gateshead
7 October 2023
10.30am - 1.30pm
Included in general admission

Join jewellery makers Silverkupe and make your own silver jewellery pieces to take home

Fancy a beginner-friendly jewellery making experience to expand your creative skills or create a beautiful gift?

Join Silverkupe Jewellery and make up to two silver jewellery pieces with the magical medium of Silverclay

What is silverclay?

If you can make cookies, you can make jewellery with Silverclay! It is a recycled product where silver from electronics, telephones etc are reclaimed and then mixed with an organic binder and turned into a clay form.

After the firing stage, the organic binder burns off and what is left is pure silver - which has more silver content than sterling silver.

What's included in the session?

We will be rolling, cutting and filing and firing the silverclay to make beautiful textured pieces. Your end pieces, which you will take home at the end of the workshop, will be in 999 pure silver.
