Polymer clay, a wonderfully accessible medium. It is immensely versatile, and its techniques are quick to pick up. All you’ll need is some guidance!
This workshop with Aliana, the founder of Dripped With Honey, will give you the tools you need to make quality pieces you’re proud of. Take a look at www.drippedwithhoney.com and @drippedwithhoney on Instagram for a show of what you’re in for!
This workshop is held at the Sunday Night Club, a gorgeous, light space with high ceilings on Level 2. The Economous Building that houses the space is one of the oldest buildings in Wellington complete with an antique elevator to ride in on your way to class.
In this two hour class you will be guided through the basics of clay jewellery making including:
-which clay to use
-how to condition clay
-deciding on clay designs
-rolling out clay slabs
-mixing clays, marbling
-basic cane making
-baking your clay pieces
-finishing your baked pieces
-assembling your jewellery
This class is specially designed for beginners. People with both pierced and unpierced ears are welcome as clip ons are available. For anyone from the age of 10-15 to attend, a parent or guardian must also buy a ticket to accompany them.
You will take home as many pairs as you can make in the two hours. (You can expect to make at least 4 pairs.)
Given the price of a pair of Dripped With Honey earrings ($40), you will be paying $65 to take home $160 of jewellery! And don’t forget the skillset that you’ll use to develop all your future masterpieces!
All clay, jewellery components, tools and other materials needed will be provided. Any brass embellishments seen on @drippedwithhoney will not be provided but participants can feel free to bring their own metal accents along!
Each workshop is also provided with sweet treats!
