Workshops & Teaching

Xuella teaches both traditional silver jewellery classes and precious metal clay. Precious metal clay is an exciting new material, that can be used like clay, but once fired is fused together to form pure silver. Traditional Jewellery classes use traditional methods such as sawing, soldering, etc. All abilities welcome.
