Jane Darley, a precious metal clay jeweller, visited the College to work with the AS Art Group. She talked to them about her work and demonstrated how to create delicate silver pieces using simple moulds. The students used polymer clays to recreate Jane’s examples, as precious metals work can be rather expensive for experimental pieces!
