Clay is a material with enormous potential that has been used centuries to make everyday objects, from pottery, tableware, tiles and bricks. It is also a very versatile material which is increasingly being used to make delicate jewellery. Ceramic jewellery takes skill to make, because of the precision needed to ensure the jewellery piece is exactly the desired size and shape.

During the Ceramic Jewellery course you will get to know ceramics in its meticulous way. Step by step, you will work on your own piece of jewellery which can be worn daily or that stands out as an art piece for special occasions. You will put your eye on the fine details of clay, and will start working on smaller objects, them being similar forms or their opposite, consisting of one unique element or multiple. You could work on earrings, pendants, rings and more.
To be able to make a nice piece of jewellery, you will use varying techniques; shaping the raw clay, glazing your object after the firing accordingly and you could do tests to get various results on the way. By attaching and combining you will make your jewels ready to wear. In this course, it is possible to work on your own interpretations and creations of ceramic jewellery.
