Polymer clay is an accessible, colourful and versatile material – a lot of fun to use, but even better with some introductory tips to get you going.
There are different types of clays and bake times, and different techniques to create shapes, blend colours, and tools to make imprints in your polymer.
We’ll put this into practice and everyone can make a piece of unique, personalised jewellery. Jewellery attachments will be provided, and we have different types of backings for earrings (studs, hooks and clip-ons).
