Information about Carol

Hi, my name is Carol Walkinshaw. I started making jewellery a few years ago after discovering silver metal clay. After attending a couple of introductory classes in metal clay I knew I wanted to gain the most comprehensive training available and chose to attend Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery (MCSJ).

I gained the MCSJ Silver Metal Clay Diploma with the Level 4 Teaching Module option and am awaiting the evaluation of my project for the Level 4 Design and Construction Module. As a personal challenge, and to ensure my skills are constantly expanding, I joined the Metal Clay Masters Registry and am looking to attain Level 1 in the not too distant future! I am also a member of Art Clay UK and the PMC Guild.

I enjoy being creative but even more than that; I really enjoy teaching and guiding others towards the sheer delight of being able to say: “I made that!” 

So, the decision was made! I would run classes and workshops to pass on the skill, experience and joy of creating metal clay jewellery. Metal Clay Scotland has two key objectives: to encourage and support you in the Home Study Programme and, to ensure that you have fun along the way!

Carol's Qualifications and Experience:

MCSJ Silver Metal Clay Diploma, introductory and intermediate silversmithing courses through Dundee University. Masterclasses with Holly Gage (repousse work), Gordon Uyehara (dry construction techniques), Carol Douglas (modelling with copper clay) and Hatti Sanderson (hollow lidded vessel).
