Locket style Bead pendant Course




I am now taking course bookings from June. If we go back into lockdown I will carry your course over to a suitable time. If you prefer you can pay 1 week before your course date by placing a non refundable £10 deposit

I am not booking specific dates for these courses, I will book them once I know when they are needed. Please contact me via email to book to loriridgwaysilver@gmail.com

Course Length

10am to 4pm – full day

During this course you will make a fixed locket style 3D pendant. This locket doesn’t open, but has a little window on the front so you can put a decoration inside that will peep through the opening in the front of the pendant.

What will you Learn?

During this course you will learn to manipulate the clay, cut shapes, add texture, mould the clay to a 3D shape, make a little mould and use that mould to add accents.

You will then learn to file and sand the clay to get the best finish on your piece, then how to put it together and fire it.

You will also learn how to make a round bail for the top of your piece to thread your chain through.

You will then have the piece fired, and then learn about burnishing and finishing your piece. If time allows on the day, I will show you how to add oxidation to your piece to add a little colour and bring out the details

Where is this course run?

The course will be taught either in my workshop in the Staffordshire countryside or at Talton Mill in Newbold-on-Stour, just five miles south of Shakespeare’s Stratford Upon Avon (Postcode : CV37 8UG)

What’s included in the course price?

The price includes all the materials you will need to make the basics of the course, including 10g of clay

For the course at my workshop in Staffordshire, you will need to bring your own lunch.

For the workshop at Talton Mill, lunch and refreshments will be included.

If you get carried away (easily done!) and want to make more on the day, extra materials will be available to purchase.

The course will run from 10 till 4pm

If you choose the Gift voucher option, I will contact you and then send you a personalised gift voucher in a gift wallet.
