During 2020, we will be hosting three masterclasses with metal clay jewellery artist Anna Mazon. Anna is an award-winning jeweller based in Poland, and comes highly recommended by our silver clay tutor Anna Campbell.
Anna Mazon is a world-renowned metal clay artist, and sought after teacher, who travels around the world to share her techniques. These are her only classes in Scotland for 2020, and we are excited to welcome her to The Arienas Collective.
Sculpting metal clay masterclass
Have you ever wished you could sculpt with silver? Now is your chance to learn!
Anna Mazon regularly sculpts with silver clay and is the perfect person to learn from. On this one day masterclass you will learn how to design and sculpt your own teddy bear pendant. The techniques you will learn will easily be transferable to any forms you want to be able to make. Your pendant will be ready for you to take home at the end of the weekend course.
Specifically you will learn:
- how to make hollow forms (which helps save on silver and make the piece light)
- how to sculpt in wet clay
- how to create detail in dry clay
- different ways to create textures in dry clay
- different ways to finish and polish the fired piece.
The price includes silver clay, plus refreshments and a buffet style lunch.
You will have access to a basic metal clay tool kit. You will need to bring a fine jewellers file with a pointed end; two fine paintbrushes; one craft knife e.g. x-acto; one pair of jewellers tweezers with a pointed end; needle tool, if you have one (we will have cocktail sticks available if not). We can send you a list of suppliers.
The class is suitable for anyone who has attended Anna Campbell's full day Introduction to silver clay jewellery beginners class. If you are unsure whether this masterclass is suitable for you, please get in touch before booking.
IMPORTANT: please check the dates and arrangements carefully since once you have booked onto this masterclass your place is non-refundable and non-transferable to another class. You can however transfer your place to a friend if you are unable to attend.
Please note that our workshop space is based on the first floor of a Georgian mews home and unfortunately we do not have lift access.

The Arienas Collective experiences are run from a supportive and welcoming home environment in the Edinburgh New Town. Spaces are limited to allow our artists and designer-makers to offer hands-on help and support. All equipment is provided and all the materials you will need (unless stated otherwise). Just turn up, leave any day-to-day worries behind, and immerse yourself in creating something unique.
Refreshment breaks are an important part of The Arienas Collective experiences. They are a time to socialise, make new friends and chat to the artists and makers. We are fortunate to have a fantastic range of independent shops and producers nearby, and are proud to feature locally sourced food and drinks.
The price includes all materials specified, refreshments and a buffet style lunch on full day workshops. And of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
Most of our workshops are also available to book as a private group, or to bring to your workplace or venue. Please email us for more information.
