Suitable for complete beginners or those with some silver clay experience who would like to further develop their skills, this full-day workshop starts with a walk around the scented gardens to collect some foliage and flowers.
You will then head to the Aromadome for a day of creativity – designing and making jewellery with silver clay. You will have the opportunity to create between one and three pieces of jewellery depending how big you choose to work.
You will learn how to make moulds of various flowers, leaves and seedpods and create a pendant, charm or drop earrings using the moulds you have made. You will then fire your piece(s), before polishing and applying finishing touches to your jewellery.

Review from Trip Advisor user, Coneyjo (6th October 2020).
“I spent a lovely day here learning how to use silver clay. The tutor and facilities were excellent and we were very well looked after. It was pouring with rain so the tutor had been out and picked a selection of plants for us to use.
We were lovely and cosy in the Aromadome. I had a lovely lunch in the cafe, the food is exquisite and the cakes I dream of. Everything is beautifully presented and if you can’t eat all your cake (the slices are huge!) staff are happy to put it in a doggy bag for you to have latter.
We learnt how to make silicone moulds to model the silver clay in and how to finish our jewellery indifferent ways for different effects. All our pendants and earrings looked fantastic and we all left clutching organza bags with our beautiful sliver makes in them. I can’t wait to do another course here when I hope it’s not pouring with rain so we can enjoy the gardens as well.”
