Start as a complete beginner and leave confident in intermediate polymer clay skills. This workshop is such fun. Working with Polymer Clay is affordable and easy to do at home so it's the perfect way to start a new hobby or business. The material is versatile and accessible for all ages and experience. You can make beautifully simple pieces or develop onto intricate, more complex designs. You'll start by rolling, cutting, forming and moulding the clay. You'll then move onto baking and finishing the pieces with jewellery findings and adhesives. You'll be able to make a number of pieces which could include pendants, earrings, rings, keyrings and more. You can then progress to some more complex techniques including decorative slabs, canes and gold leaf. Then using your new skills to turn these into jewellery or even a small plate or bowl. On day two you can explore hand built canes, mica powders, embedded findings, stencils, carving and more. You’ll be bursting with ideas and laden with the lovely experiments and pieces you have made over the two days! This workshop is a guaranteed one to one session so that I can tailor the workshop to your interests and needs as an individual. You can achieve so much this way. Develop skills to start a new business, take up a new hobby or craft for the joy of it … I can ensure the day progresses the way you want it to. A one-night self-catering stay is available for free with this booking in our onsite retro caravan (subject to availability). Please enquire. All courses, workshops and kits come with free support afterwards. Email me or arrange a video call. I love to see what my students and fellow crafters are up to and really enjoy answering questions or helping if I can. So any booking isn’t just for the day it’s the start of a crafting friendship!

Where it all began … I first learnt to crochet as a child and spent hours and hours making, sewing, knitting and learning every new technique possible in art, craft and design. After a degree in Graphics and with 16 years experience teaching Textiles, Graphics, Art & Design and Design & Technology I strongly believe in developing my own practice to be the best tutor I can be. I am continually inspired by my students of all ages so it's definitely and 2 way street!
