Introduction to Polymer clay
Everything you might need or want to know about polymer clay.

So you saw some of this polymer clay stuff and wonder what it is? What you can make with it? How do you use it?
Well let me show you. But fair warning, this stuff is addictive!
yup, if you have ANY creativity at all, (and if you didn't you would not be reading this now.)
Then this is one medium you will most certainly fall in love with.

I'll start by explaining what polymer clay is, the differences in brands, how to condition your clay and why.
Tips on curing, (it cures in any home oven.)
I'll discuss tools. What you really need just to get started and tons of things you might want to get later for specific techniques.
I'll bring in a bunch of my own tools for you to play with in class.

We will have a little hands on with some color blending. And for this, you need a pasta machine. I only have a few I can bring in and that's why the class size is limited. If you have a pasta machine please do bring it. Otherwise we will share mine.

Finally, I have tons of items I make and sell on line. I'll bring in an assortment just to show, and describe the various techniques used to make each piece.

Bring a notebook and your curiosity. I'll supply all the tools you need in class. I'll have some clay in class you can take home but you may wish to buy your own too.
