My workshop is ideal for creatives of all levels, whether you are an experienced maker or a complete novice! It will be a friendly, encouraging, environment for you to build your skill level and hone your creativity.
Workshop numbers are limited to make sure we can all social distance.
* What will I learn if I come to a Peaches and Tea Workshop?
My workshop is skills based and will provide you with everything you need to make quality polymer clay earrings. You’ll get information about the clay, curing techniques, tools and how to look after and store it all, demonstrations of different techniques with clay and other related materials such as gold leaf. You will learn all of this and so much more.
* What will I get to take home?
Aside from all the amazing skills and new Polymer Clay tricks and hacks you will be provided with a workbook and up to 5 pairs of handmade earrings made by your awesome self during the allotted time (clip on options also available)
* What do I need to bring?
Just bring yourself, hand gel and a face covering while Covid is still lurking. Other than that I’d encourage you to start a mood board (maybe on Pinterest) of a couple of ideas of what you think you might like to create (keep your makes original though, no one likes a copycat!) The materials and tools to make all of your creations on the day will be provided.
* Will it be safe?
I'll make it as safe as possible for everyone involved - We’ll all have to follow current government guidelines on face coverings and social distancing. I've completed a risk assessment for the evening available upon request. Your own face covering will need to be worn when moving around the room and hand gel will be available before, during and after the workshop but please bring your own if you can!
Before the workshop please do a lateral flow if you're able to. Please don't come if you're feeling ill or have any of the symptoms. A full refund or transfer to another workshop date will be provided if this is the case.
