This specialist short course which will focus on making ceramic beads for jewellery.
You will be guided through different techniques for making ceramic beads using specialist clays, coloured stains, and lustres. You will be taught about the different states of clay/ceramics including shrinkage, modelling techniques, marbling and glazing techniques using nichrome wire.
By the end of the three weeks you will have a small but unique collection of beads from which you can go onto to make earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
