Polymer clay jewellery with Jane Clarke



Jane Clarke has been designing and making jewellery for many years and has a wealth of knowledge that she wants to share on how to be confident in the art of jewellery making.

Polymer clay (common make - Fimo) is a wonderful 'plastic' type clay which comes in bright vibrant colours, is easy to handle and is baked hard in an oven. It is easy to use at home and you can produce high quality individual pieces with planning and thought.

On this half day course Jane will guide you through using polymer clay to design and create pendants and earrings, using a variety of effective techniques.

The clay needs to be conditioned before you can start creating to make it soft and subtle enough to form, and Jane will demonstrate several conditioning techniques before letting you have a go yourselves.

Then comes the layering and forming into canes which are cut off in slices before creating the final forms of clay which will then be baked and finally turned into jewellery.

This is a fun, short course aimed at complete beginners but once you have been on this workshop we feel sure you will appreciate the bright and colourful variety of clays available, and the stunning results which can be achieved from this most versatile of craft mediums.

We then hope you will be inspired to attend some more advanced classes later in the year.

The course focus is always on fun and friendly creativity with lots of personal tuition from an experienced jewellery maker.

Cancellation and a full refund can be obtained up to 2 weeks before the course starts. Start dates may be amended on request.

What's included in the price?

Liquid refreshments are provided throughout the day but there are nearby shops and cafes where reasonably priced and delicious food can be purchased should you choose.

The course cost includes all materials, use of tools and teas / coffees throughout the day.

You may want to bring an apron and pen & paper to take notes. Other than that you just need to turn up with the desire to learn and have fun.

A great experience from start to finish. Easy parking at the venue. David is really welcoming to his shop and craft room. The craft room was clean, well set up for our small group.
Jane was fantastic, friendly, engaging and clear with her instructions.
The afternoon flew by and everyone came out with something individual to wear.

Response from Created By Hand:

Thanks for the lovely feedback Michelle

I'm always really impressed with the level of work people come away with from Jane's class and this class was no exception.

Hopefully it has given you the confidence to try something like this at home
