Do you find it hard to know what to get some people for christmas? Solve the problem and have fun learning a new skill by joining us for a special festive-themed silver jewellery workshop.
You can make your choice of
• christmas gifts
• personalised silver wine glass or gin glass charms
• personalised silver christmas cracker or table gifts e.g. pendants, key rings
• silver christmas pudding charms (that you can bake in your pudding)
• or just make something for yourself (we won't tell!)
This workshop is suitable for beginners. You will learn how to make your own bespoke pieces out of silver clay, a material made up of recycled silver particles, an organic binder and water that can easily be used at home with little need for equipment. Our expert tutor will take you through all the steps to create your own pieces ready for firing. The dried clay is fired with a butane torch to form it into silver, a creme brule torch will do. You’ll then polish your silver pieces ready to take home.
This is an excellent taster class to give you an idea of the possibilities of this unique material and helps you cross some people off your christmas to do list. And why not bring along a friend or two? It's a great alternative to a Christmas night out!
The course includes 5g of silver clay which is enough to make three silver pendants or a set of 8 christmas pudding charms. More clay will be available to purchase on the day if you want to go all out!
The price includes all materials, refreshments and of course you take home all the lovely silver jewellery you make.
Please note that The Arienas Collective workshops are run from the first floor of a home-based environment and unfortunately we do not have lift access. Please advise us of any skin or food allergies when booking.
Silver clay festive-themed workshop: 12 November 6pm-9pm
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 designer-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, lunch and refreshments, and of course you get to take home all the unique products you have created.
All our experiences are also available to book as a private group for up to 8 people. If you would like to book an experience for a larger number please email us.
