Have you ever wanted to make your own piece of silver jewellery or would you like to try something new? Now, you can!
Everyone can do it, no previous experience is needed and you don’t have to be creative. How?
Join me for a 3 hour introduction PMC (Precious Metal Clay) workshop at Breaks Cafe in Fremantle, The Hive Emporium in East Victoria Park or a private workshop on location.
In collaboration with The Artisan Store in Fremantle I am offering 1 workshop per fortnight at Breaks Cafe or at The Artisan Store in Fremantle.
From the end of September 2023, I will also be offering workshops at The Hive Emporium in East Victoria Park.

If you would like to host a workshop at your place (max. 1 hour drive from Cottesloe) and have a minimum of 3 participants, please contact me by email and I will send you the current information.

Due to the small group size you are not limited to a number of designs but you can make your own unique design for a pendant or/and a pair of hanging earrings as long as your design is feasible with your skills and in the time that you have. I will be able to give everyone personal attention and advice, so you will end up with your own unique piece.
Outlay of the workshop;
You will be given information about the material, practicing with modelling clay to get a feel for working with clay and working out your design (keep it simple!). When you have worked with PMC before you can skip this part and you can work on a more complicated design or on more pieces. You will then make a pendant or a pair of hanging earrings with PMC and finish your piece/pieces to the stage that it will go into the kiln. The firing process will take approx. 3 hours so your piece will be hard and the silver will be fully sintered so unfortunately, you won't be able to take your piece home on the day of the workshop.
The Artisan Store workshop at Breaks Cafe and The Hive Emporium workshops: I will fire and finish your piece(s) at home and you can collect your piece(s) a few days later at The Artisan Store.
Workshops on location: I will fire and finish your piece(s) at home and I will send them to the host a few days later
Cost of the workshop; $135 (3 hour workshop)
The workshop price includes:
- Use of all the tools
- 1 fine silver bail back for your pendant or 1 pair of sterling ear wires for your earrings
- 10 gram of PMC+

- delivery/mailing the jewellery pieces
Approximately 5 to 10 gram of PMC is needed for a pendant or a pair of earrings. Extra PMC is available at $4 per gram. PMC price is depending on the current silver price and may vary. Current PMC price : $5 per gram
