Precious Metal Clay (PMC) can be shaped and textured to make wearable jewellery, beads and small sculptures. Continue working with this user-friendly and completely malleable clay that excitingly transforms to 99.9% pure silver.

An experienced tutor will guide you through the design process – development and finish – so that you can achieve your creative goal. You will be introduced to various techniques to assist them with the transfer of creative idea to the finished piece.
