Description

Learn to make striking, hand crafted beads using polymer clay to turn into one of a kind pieces of jewellery. Led by designer & maker, Therese Lyons of Ena & Albert, you will learn all the tips & tricks you need to get started with this fun & easy to use medium.

One of the best things about working with polymer clay is the freedom to create your own colours, shapes & textures for one of a kind beads. This workshop will cover all of these steps as well as go over best practice tips including setting up your workspace, conditioning the clay, different ways for mark making, tips on how to choose colour palletes and how to design a finished necklace.

Not only will you walk away feeling pretty pleased with yourself for being so clever, you’ll have a one of a kind, hand crafted necklace! The best part will be when you receive a compliment wearing your new jewellery, to which you can proudly say, “I made it!”.
