Join Jo from Faye Benjamin jewellery to create some special Christmas gifts. Using silver clay, you will make you own unique piece of silver jewellery to take away. You will also learn how to add a sparkling stone to really bring your piece to life.

A great opportunity for those who have already attended the introduction workshop to learn some new techniques. Beginners also welcome.

Although you can adapt your own design, demos will follow a Christmas pendant theme to really get you in the mood!
