Description

Come play with clay! Join us for an introduction to making colorful jewelry—beads, pins and earrings—out of polymer clay such as Sculpey and Fimo. It’s easy and it’s fun and everyone can do it. No prior experience is required.

In the first half of this workshop, we’ll begin with squares of colorful clay, prepare the clay and arrange it into colorful designs and canes that we’ll form into beads or pins. At the end of the morning we’ll cook the clay to harden it in a toaster oven.

In the second half of the workshop, we’ll glaze the beads, arrange them and string them. We’ll attach findings: clasps, pin backs, and pierced ear wires. At the end of the day you will have one or more pieces of colorful jewelry.

Materials

The instructor will provide equipment and materials such as clay and findings. Please bring your own clay knife, if you have one.

There will be a $10 per person materials fee collecting on the day of the workshop (cash only please).

About the Instructor
Kat Fast has been fooling with polymer clay for years and creating products that she has sold at the Weston Arts and Crafts Association, the Wayland Depot and in many craft fairs and stores. She teaches classes and workshops in polymer clay and in graphology (handwriting analysis) under the umbrella of Fast Associates. (Don’t look for a pattern here!)

Recently she was an editor for Level Best Books and is a published author of mystery stories. Her other love is watercolor, and of course, cats.

In her first lives, Kat focused on quantitative marketing research and marketing models consulting, seminar instruction, head hunting, handwriting analysis and editing. (Again, she defies you to identify a pattern.) She has a BA from Oberlin College in history and a MA from Cambridge College in Education.
