We’re excited to reveal our latest virtual craft course in the Gathered Learn to Craft series of webinars for modern makers. This time we’ll be learning how to make easy accessories, homewares and jewellery using polymer clay! And the best bit is, we’ll teach you this beautiful new craft from the comfort of your home. Come along and learn how to make, shape and sculpt polymer clay in this fun course for beginners.
In case you’ve not come across it before, polymer clay is a great way to play with making your own clay creations without needing quite as much kit or pottery expertise as you will with traditional ceramics. You might have come across polymer clay and called it “FIMO” but actually it comes in a range of brands and is is known for its versatility, pliability and simplicity to work with.
You simply shape it into your chosen items, and then bake in the oven, making it very popular with artists and hobbyists alike! In this fun, hour long webinar you will learn how to master polymer clay in your own home, and you won’t need any specialist equipment. Come along and master a new skill with us!
