This is an intensive six day course which covers Level 1 and Level 2 of the Art Clay Diploma back-to-back. As such, it is only suitable for metal clay students with a very good level of skill working with silver clay. It will move at a pace appropriate for those who are very familiar with metal clay. It is not suitable for complete beginners or those without plenty of experience using metal clay.
You will be required to pass the Level 1 Diploma before moving on to the Level 2 part of the Intensive course. If you have booked the Intensive but do not pass Level 1, no refund will be offered. Before booking the Intensive course please be very sure you have the required skill level. If you are in doubt, call the school to speak to Julia.
What is included in the cost of the course?
The class cost includes all materials and the Art Clay World Level 1 and 2 Diploma fees.
Holders of the Art Clay Diploma level 2 qualification enjoy 20% discount on Art Clay products from the official distributors.
You will be eligible to progress to the Art Clay Higher Diploma on successful completion of both levels. There are no classes at this level and you will have set criteria for designing and making three pieces of jewellery. This must be done without the help or guidance of a teacher. You will need to wait six months from the date of your Level 1 class before submitting your pieces for the Higher Diploma. The Higher Diploma holder gets 30% discount on Art Clay products and can teach Level 1 and 2 Diploma classes.
Why choose the Art Clay Diploma?
The Art Clay Diploma metal clay certification is the most beneficial precious metal clay qualification available. Not only do you get training in a variety of advanced metal clay techniques, you also get discounts on Art Clay products. This discount is a huge benefit if you are going to make working with precious metal clay your business. Or even if you want your hobby to cost you less! If you also want to learn traditional silver working techniques, adding colour, texture making or working with other brands of metal clay, take a private class with Julia Rai. You can set your own agenda and learn exactly what you need. All of the techniques included in other, less beneficial metal clay qualification courses can be learned in a private day with Julia.
The total cost of gaining the full Art Clay Diploma metal clay qualification at CSACJ is below.
- Art Clay Diploma Intensive private class (levels 1 and 2) and Art Clay Higher Diploma fee (£25) – £1225
- Diploma levels 1 and 2 scheduled classes and Art Clay Higher Diploma fee (£25) – £1165
- Diploma levels 1 and 2 private classes and Art Clay Higher Diploma fee (£25) – £1315
- Add a private one day class with Julia Rai at £200 to cover anything else you want to learn.
Bring your own materials on the private class if necessary at the discount you will receive having passed the Art Clay Diploma!
Even if you did this the most expensive way – all as individual private, one-to-one classes including the private class to learn other skills – the total cost would only be £1515. Compare that to the total costs of other metal clay qualifications. And how much will you save on buying metal clay in the future with your discount? Can other precious metal clay certification courses offer you that?
Before you book a precious metal clay qualification course, compare the total costs. Really consider the benefits and merits of each and decide what you want. Look at the skills learned, the techniques covered and think about the value for money. Also consider the lifetime financial benefits of the Art Clay Diploma against other metal clay qualification courses. Make sure you spend your hard earned money on something that is worth getting.
