About the Course

'Mokume Gane' is a Japanese term which refers to layering metals to achieve a wood grain effect. We will explore the technique by combining thin sheets of your favourite colours into a clay stack. We will then impress an intricate pattern and, using finely cut layers, create a set of 3D disc beads.
Once cured, we will sand and string them to make a stunning, statement necklace and matching earrings.

This was my second visit along with my friend to one of Jo's workshops. My last one was silver polymer clay this one was creating polymer clay Mokume Gane beads. I was absolutely thrilled with the outcome. I managed to get a necklace, pendant, a smaller pendant and various stud earrings. Jo is exceptionally helpful and makes sure your work is finished to a high standard. Our next course already booked for the Best of Both. Polymer clay and silver on our next visit to Cornwall in April.👍Highly recommended.

I had a brilliant day with Jo and came home with a stunning necklace and earrings that all my friends are admiring. They are very impressed I could make the beads myself on just a one day course.
Jo does offer two other bead making courses and I'd really like to try both of those too, now I've got the bug.

Jenny, thank you for your feedback. I really enjoyed the day too. Your colour choices were lovely and I'm so pleased that your friends like your necklace and earrings as much as we did!

My friend and I had a fabulous day learning to make Mokume Gane - polymer clay beads and created lovely necklaces and ear-rings, taught so well by the lovely Jo Hunter! Jo made us so welcome and even made gluten free biscuits especially for me! Jo showed us how to make extra beads from the left-over clay so I can continue my creations at home. I will definitely be continuing with my bead-making and my friend will be recommending this class to her friends and colleagues, locally. Really good value and a brilliant day of crafting! thank you so much Jo!

Response from West Country Creative Ltd:

Thank you for that lovely feedback Liz. It was a pleasure to meet you and Jo. If you're down again and want another workshop, just let me know and we can arrange a bespoke class to fit in with your holiday plans.
