Polymer clay, that wonderful 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 Smashed Avocados Pop Up, a women-run collective empowering local, eco-friendly, female owned businesses.
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
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 and savoury treats.
