I began my journey into Silver Metal clay whilst running a pottery studio and soon became hooked! The magic of turning a piece of clay into a solid piece of Hallmark Silver never fails to amaze me and I love sharing this with my students and helping them create a lovely piece of jewellery that they can wear proudly home makes my job the best.

I hold a Higher Diploma in Silver Metal Clay and am a senior metal clay instructor and glass teacher. I have been teaching for over ten years running classes from my studio in Market Bosworth and many jewellery schools and galleries all around the Midlands area. I am a member of The Guild of Jewellers and am on the education committee of the alliance of metal clay. I also hold a Gold student choice award. One of my proudest moments was visiting Tokyo and seeing one of my pieces displayed in the Silver Accessories Exhibition.

I would love to meet you on one of my courses so please book as soon as you can.

Lovely venue for a small group. Well organised and everything we needed was readily available. Louise explained the process very calmly and with knowledge. We learned a new skill and are very pleased with the very wearable jewellery that we created. Would recommend.

We felt Louise was attentive to individual need and a great teacher guiding us through the process. The tea/coffee and biscuits was very welcome! We thoroughly enjoyed the half day workshop and will be returning:)

I have been before, but I decided to attend again, so that my granddaughter could come. (any excuse!) For me it was a refresher, but my granddaughter loved it. Louise was very good and helped us both. The venue is marvellous and the cost is very reasonable. I'd thoroughly recommend doing the silverclay workshop with Louise.

Teacher's response

Hi Debbie, thank you for your lovely review. I am so glad you both enjoyed your day.

The class was very interesting and great fun when you then try yourself. The teacher is really helpful and thoughtful. If you need a hand with anything she’s there but if you’re happy with what you’re doing she’s fine to let you carry on. I would recommend it to anyone interested!

Brilliant way to learn a new skill. Louise was friendly and taught at the right level. She was very helpful during the practical bits when we needed assistance.
I would thoroughly recommend the course.

My daughter and I really enjoyed the class, Louise was really patient and told us everything we needed to know and showed us exactly what we needed to do step by step to create some beautiful jewellery. Louse made us feel really at home and was really friendly…would come again. Thankyou! X

Sally Feb 2024

The workshop was a Christmas present for my daughter and I. The whole experience was lovely! Louise was a great teacher and host. We couldn’t have asked for anything better. We both successfully made several beautiful pieces of silver despite not having any prior experience. Thank you Louise for a fab few hours tinkering with silver clay.

Teacher's response

Hi Sally, glad you enjoyed it hope your pieces were well admired! Hope to see you again

Laura Jan 2024

Lovely class, Louise is very friendly and thorough with her teaching! She let me try out different ideas and showed me whether they would work before I committed them to the silver clay. I learned a lot and it was a fab experience. Would recommend. Thank you Louise!

Teacher's response

Thank you Laura- I am so glad you enjoyed your day! It was lovely to meet you and help you create your beautiful jewellery - I hope it’s been very much admired
