Class guidelines

There must be a minimum of 2 students per class and a maximum of 6 students per class.

Cost is $45 per student.

All materials will be provided.

Must be registered one week prior to the class.

There will be a series of 3 classes


In this class you will learn the fundamentals of working with polymer clay.  You will become familiar with basic tools for texture and design and the process of kneading and conditioning the clay.  You will learn to make 3 basic canes and will complete a piece of jewelry and matching earrings before the class is over. (2 - 2 1/2 hours)


This class is the next step after completing the introductory class.  You will be introduced to a clay technique known as Mokumegane.  Mokumegane is an ancient Japanese method for laminating various colors of metals together and manipulating them to create patterns that resemble wood patterns.  In this class we will be creating patterns from layers of polymer clay, manipulating them and removing slices.  We will use rubber stamps, texture tools, needles, silver leaf for some very unique results.  After cutting the slices, we will use them to create jewelry.  We will also talk about the best glazes to use on our finished pieces ( 2 - 2 1/2 hours).


In this class, we will talk about silk screening polymer clay, applying alcohol inks to clay and using acrylic paints on clay.  After demonstrations, you may choose the technique for your final project ( 2 - 2 1/2 hours)


I will also be offering special classes for seasonal projects or new techniques.  These will be for anyone who has completed at least the introductory class.


Classes are held on a first come first served basis for a maximum of 6 students.
