Studio Classes in Silver Clay

Welcome to Silver Clay School’s Studio Classes

Hello! I am so pleased you’ve found my little corner of the internet and are interested in Silver Clay Workshops in Scotland.

You’re here because you are interested in learning all about Silver Clay!

Whether you’re a total beginner or you have done some in the past and want to learn about a specific technique, I am sure you’ll find something to interest you here.

I am proud to say I offer the widest variety of Silver Clay workshops in Scotland – there’s lots to choose from! I also offer 1-2-1 training, so if you want to brush up on your skills or learn something specific, then GET IN TOUCH, I am sure we can organise something to suit.

I love teaching Silver Clay – it’s something I’ve been doing for the past 10+ years and I never stop enjoying the experience of meeting newbies and converting them into die hard Silver Clay fans. It’s my passion to share my know-how, gained from numerous training courses over the years as well as the many mistakes and happy accidents I have made!

Why learn with me?

I know you have a choice when it comes to where you learn how to make jewellery with Silver Clay. Why spend your hard earned cash with me?

I believe in making classes small and intimate. I rarely teach classes of over 4 because I want to make sure that you are getting all the attention you deserve when you are making beautiful jewellery.

I think that classes should always be fun – smiling and laughing are definitely part of the day. But don’t think that means I don’t care about what you’re learning, because I do. I’ve spent a lot of time in my earlier days being a training consultant for technological companies – I know how to train and put a class together, I’ve been doing it for over 20 years.

I also think follow-up support is really key to your learning. Which is why I give you access to my online training resources, so you can refer to them long after the class is finished. And if you want to – you’re very welcome to join me in my private Students Facebook group, where you can ask me questions and show off what you’ve been making.

Ooh and on top of all that, there’s cake….did I mention that?

Small Classes

Small and perfectly formed. Four in a class means that you get plenty of 1-2-1 attention.


Keep in touch. Get your questions answered and join a friendly Facebook community.
