Paint and Clay, at West Country Creative in Lifton, Devon

Mixed media shawl pin

About the Course

This workshop is all about playing with colour and pattern, and you don’t need to be naturally creative to achieve amazing results! Jo will show you how to develop your pattern sheet using watercolours, pastels, chalks, mica powders, foils, acrylics and more. We will play with textures, stencils and screen prints too.

Once you’re sheet is complete, you will use it to produce a range of items - you could make a statement necklace and earrings, an intricately decorated shawl pin and some buttons, a collection of brooches or a mix of beautiful items - it’s up to you! Just come and have fun!

In-person course

Jo and I discussed how much experience I had of working with Polymer Clay.
Taking this into account she tailored my session to meet the skills I already had and to extend them further.
Jo's calm, easy going manner made learning a relaxing experience even though we got through several processes.
I learned new skills in working with colour, texture and we used clay I hadn't used before that enhanced my results.
I came away with my head buzzing with what I had learned and I have already put some of that learning in to practice with very satisfactory results.
I have another course booked with Jo already.
I would encourage anyone thinking of having a go at this course to give it a try, whether you have previous experience using Polymer Clay or not.

Response from West Country Creative Ltd:

Thank you so much for your kind words Clare - it was a fun day for both of us! Looking forward to seeing you next month, Jo
