WIRED OPEN LABS 2020: POLYMER CLAY JEWELLERY
hero
  • AFTER SELL OUT WORKSHOPS THREE YEARS RUNNING The WIRED Lab WELCOMES BACK
    NADINE SHARPE from OWN SWEET TIME

    AS PART OF THE WIRED OPEN LABS WORKSHOP SERIES 2020

  • Join Nadine Sharpe as she runs this introductory course on polymer clay jewellery making and design.

This interactive workshop is full of learning and hands-on experience. 

IN THIS 6 Hour Workshop you will learn

This full day polymer clay workshop is split in to two sessions. In the morning session, we cover the technical side of working with polymer clay, and then look at the various basic shapes and working with colour, including colour marbling and adding colour to the surface of your pieces. We produce a variety of beads for the first necklace, which are baked during the lunch break.

In the afternoon, following a break for a bite to eat, we look at different ways to embellish beads, as well as finishing and stringing options. We make a variety of textured and embellished pieces for our second set of creations, which will be packaged up to cure at home.

Participants will come out of this workshop, not only with finished pieces, but also with the confidence to go on and continue to create with polymer clay at home.

Who Should Attend?

Any one with an interest in jewellery design or polymer clay. All experience levels welcome. This class caters for beginners. 

What You'll Get

Participants will go home with a collection of completed pieces, such as necklace and earrings. They will also take home further finished pieces to cure at home.

Participants will also be provided with a yummy home-made snack and/or fruit platter, and refreshments including water, organic teas and French press coffee.

What to bring 

All materials provided.
To avoid waste please bring your own water bottle and keep cup!
