Polymer Clay: Millefiori Buttons and Beads

Sally Boehme has been working with beads for almost thirty years, and has been teaching beadwork and polymer clay techniques since 2009 across the country.

Polymer clay is a material available in a variety of lovely colours that can be shaped and then cured in a domestic oven. This course will provide a taster of its potentially addictive qualities when creating your own bespoke jewellery or decorative elements for your personal projects. You will study techniques on how to create beads and buttons of all shapes and sizes, plus have the opportunity to make simple patterns using at least two ‘millefiori’ techniques. You will also be shown how to create some amazing effects with all the leftover scraps, so there is never any waste! Aspects of jewellery design will also be covered, and you will be shown how to string your beads and buttons to create one or more pieces of jewellery to take home.

This course is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

The fee for the course does not cover the cost of materials. You are welcome to bring your own materials but please don’t worry if you can’t: all materials and tools will be available to be purchased or borrowed from the tutor. Additional costs should range between £10 to £15.

 

Led by: Sally Boehme

Please arrive by noon on Tuesday. Course ends with lunch on Thursday.
