Hi there!
This is a fun and fluid class where the overall design is entirely up to you. Want a different shape? Sure! Would prefer to change the texture? No problem! There is plenty of scope for versatility and it's only limited to your imagination, so enjoy the chance to drop into the creative side of precious metal clay with this quirky class.

Lots of fun to be had in this introductory class! We will be diving into clay care, textures, shapes, embellishments, forming and finishing, so it's going to be a fun day full of creativity, kilns and fire! Bring your sense of humour and come for the fun.

I'm looking forward to seeing you there,

What you will learn

  • Metal clay is endlessly exciting! You'll love the sheer scope of what you can do with this wonderful material, and how easy it is to work with when you have the basics down! You can do an intro class in this and come away with something truly fabulous!

What you will get

  • You'll be with me from 10 am to 6:00 pm (unless you're all speedy and we finish up earlier!) so I'll have morning tea ready for you when you get here. Coffee and tea are available for you at anytime, and when we break for lunch, there are a number of cafes and eateries nearby, or you can bring your own lunch if you prefer.

What to bring

  • Just yourself! A full kit of materials is included in your class fee, and tools will be provided.

What to wear

This is a no-fire day at the Makery, so anything you’d be comfy in for the day is fine. A suggestion though would be to avoid tailing sleeves that can get caught up in the work, and to keep rings and bracelets to a minimum..

Appropriate for

This is an open beginner class, available to those from years 16 and up.

Here you will meet new friends as you take raw materials and turn them into beautiful pieces of jewellery that will thoroughly impress your friends and family.

Small, intimate classes of no more than five people ensure plenty of one-on-one time with Storm as you put your new skills to the test creating a wide range of projects including rings, earrings, cuffs, bracelets and pendants.

The various classes will cover techniques such as Soldering, Pierce-work, Filing and Finishing, Stone Setting, Fold-forming, Etching, Enamelling, Metal Clay, Kumihimo Cord Making, Viking knit, Wire Wrapping, Bone Carving and so much more. It's fair to say that there is something for everyone, and you won't be bored any time soon!

Gilded Poppy Makery is a warm, inclusive place where learning is fun and mistakes are celebrated as 'Design Features' (we have a sticker with that very thing on it!). Bring your curiosity and a sense of humour and join us at the workbench.

I'm looking forward to meeting you all,
