What is this class about?

Combining traditional silverwork techniques with metal clay you’ll create a totally unique fibula brooch with the wow factor. All the materials are included in the price. After signing up for the class, you will be given more information on this. You’ll also get a list of the tools you’ll need to bring if you have them. To see a full list of what’s included in the price, see below.

Iwona’s work has a strong narrative quality resulting in some incredibly complex designs. By combining silver tube, wire and metal clay, she creates light, highly sculptural pieces. During the two days you spend with her, you’ll learn her approach, what inspires her and how she designs her amazing creations. Iwona will help you to tell your own stories through your work and teach you how to realise your design ideas.

Skills Required

This course is suitable for metal clay intermediate or advanced level metal clay artists. You don’t need to have any experience of working with silver in a traditional way although that would be an advantage. Iwona will teach you all you need to know to create a stunning brooch. You’ll be doing quite a bit of soldering on this course and you’ll need a more thorough understanding of soldering for this project. If you have attended any of Iwona’s other classes, you will be fine for this one.

The course may also appeal to traditional silver workers who have used metal clay to an intermediate level. If you want to see how these two materials can work together successfully, this course is for you.

If you’ve ever struggled with soldering, after spending this time with Iwona you will be able to solder anything to anything! Imagine the possibilities of being able to design and create pieces of jewellery that are not only works of art but tell the story in your head.

By the end of the course, you will fully understand the potential of combining traditional silver techniques and metal clay. And you’ll know how you can use this to create one-of-a-kind, statement jewellery.

What will you create?

On this class you will create a stunning brooch. Using Sterling silver wire and metal clay elements you will create a brooch with a separate pin on a natural theme. If you have a favourite flower, you can use it as inspiration to create the elements of your brooch. Maybe you have some seed pods or shells you particularly like. These can be moulded and included in the final design. The possibilities are endless for this project. Iwona will also show you her technique for colouring which brings the design to life. Skills learned in this project include hand forming and/or moulding delicate elements, working with sterling wire to create supporting shapes and viable brooch pins and more advanced soldering techniques.

  • Sterling wire, 1.7mm x 28cm long, 1mm x 20cm long
