In this workshop, your tutor - bead and textile artist Vana Ford - will show you how to make your own beautiful beads. You will condition the clay, make a polymer clay cane, reduce the cane and apply it like a veneer to the beads you have made.
Polymer clay is a fun medium to use and one you can easily use at home to create fabulous jewellery and many other items.
3 hours, max 8 participants. Children over 12 years welcome with an accompanying adult.
All materials provided.
