Cherry Heaven: Jewellery Courses, Workshops, Masterclasses And Teacher Certification.
The Kitiki Studio used to provide an Art Clay educational programme: jewellery-making, demonstrations, masterclasses, workshops, and Art Clay Level 1 and Level 2 certification courses through partners.
However, as we're in a scenic rural area and didn't want to be tied to a studio over the weekends and school holidays, we stopped in 2018. Also, so many people are running classes in every part of the country.
Classes and courses, and their standards, vary a lot. Make sure that the cost of all the materials is included and that the class size is small enough so that you'll get individual attention.
My advice now is to learn from the internet, or choose a teacher who actually makes, and sells, things that you like. It's important that the teacher will make time to talk you through kiln firing and that you'll go home with a finished item.
Art Clay Metal Clays.
Art Clay is easy to work with: you can shape it in minutes, dry it quickly with a hair drier, fire it on your kitchen gas hob, and polish it with toothpaste. You start with soft clay and end up with real solid 999 silver: ready to wear, give, or sell.
You can design and make your own unique necklaces, bracelets, earrings, charms, keepsakes, rings, brooches, anklets, ornaments, and seasonal decorations.
You can add silver clasps to clothes, overlays to gift cards, motifs to handbags, highlights to wood, ceramics, glass, and shells, and produce complex shapes and patterns from moulds.
