We’ll be learning:

  • Week 1 -First class: how to use air dry clay, tips and tricks for home use, how to make trinket plates or ring holders, embossing/ texturing and if you are up for it you can even try sculpting more complicated things.
  • Week 2 -Second class: Once our creations have fully dried we will learn about painting clay and different finishing options to make your creations more durable or waterproof .
