Silver Metal Clay with young students

Today I taught several young people the techniques of using the silver metal clay. They made some remarkable pieces of jewellery. The students are also remarkable as they are young carers.
Young carers are people under the age of 26 who help look after a family member who needs extra support at home. The person they care for may have a disability, mental illness, a drug or alcohol problem, or a long term illness. There are over 40,000 young carers in Western Australia, which means there are probably two in every classroom!
