Jewellery Making Courses with Silver Clay

Covid-19 Latest Information

We would like to thank you for your continuing support during these testing times. Our studio classes and workshops continue to be suspended and we are constantly monitoring the Government guidelines for social distancing in the workplace to see what measures we will need to put in place when we eventually reopen. We are also working with our fellow artists at our studio premises with regard to policies that will apply to common areas such as carparks, courtyards, toilets and kitchen areas. Our current forecast is to reopen at the end of August with our next ACWUK Diploma Courses. This will be reconfirmed nearer the time.

In the meantime, we still have plenty of creative support for you in our Online Distance Learning Programme & from our Online Store

Craftworx is a dedicated Metal Clay Jewellery School located in Yorkshire. It covers the whole of the North of England.

We teach to professional standards in an informal atmosphere. We aim to give students the skills, techniques and confidence to achieve successful results in jewellery making using this amazing material of precious metal clay.
Our workshops range from the basic Introduction to Silver Clay through to more intermediate and advanced subjects including ring making, baby prints, hinged boxes, linked in chains, silver clay for beaders, Bronze Clay, raden and resin, enamelling and moulding.

We also offer both of the accredited Art Clay World UK (ACWUK) Level 1 and 2 Diploma courses.


Our Studio

Craftworx Jewellery Workshops is one of a cohort of artists' studios situated in superbly renovated barns on a working farm, set just outside the picturesque village of Bishop Burton in East Yorkshire on the edge of the Yorkshire Wolds. This remote location is easy to access with motorway, train, sea and air transport routes close by. Our students travel from all over the country and abroad, often to stay longer to enjoy the surrounding area. The renovated barn conversion is light and spacious, providing a practical and very well equipped facility with all the essential tools and equipment for your use...........  More information
