A LOCAL jewellery maker is holding a series of workshops at Himley Hall to help others learn how to use silver clay.

Julie Sheldon is running six sessions suitable for adults of all abilities including beginners.

On Saturday February 19 participants will be given the chance to create a guardian angel pendant while on Saturday March 26 people will be able to create a flower pendant.

On Saturday April 23 there will be a lentil bead wish bracelet making session and on Saturday May 21 there will be a workshop to learn how to make star or flower rings.

People will be able to make Dizzy the dragon pendants on Saturday June 25 and there will be an introduction day on Saturday July 30 showing how to make three pieces.

Julie Sheldon said: “Silver clay is brilliant as it takes recycled silver, adds it to a non-toxic binder and then enables anyone to create genuine 99.9 per cent pure jewellery.

“My classes are open to anyone who would like to give it a try – there is no previous experience necessary, and I will be there to help throughout the day.”

The activities start from £65 and must be pre-booked. Full details are online at himleyhallandpark.co.uk/whats-on.
