Miniature Clay Sculptures
Time & Location
About the Event
Course Dates: Every week on Wednesdays from 3:00pm-3:50pm PST during the month of September, starting September 2nd.
Course Description: This course will allow you to tap into your creativity and express yourself through an entirely different medium! We will be using polymer clay (or oven bake clay) during this course for optimal strength and detail in our finished pieces. By the end of our four classes together, you will have gained basic sculpting skills and be able to deconstruct an image/model to sculpt it yourself! We will start with making basic pieces (like plants, food, and animal heads) and slowly move up in complexity, ending the course with a free sculpt of yourself as a clay person. Regardless of whether you have a lot or a little experience, there is something in this course for everyone!
Activity Leader bio: May has been working with polymer clay since she was nine years old. She has always been passionate about crafting and has tried many different things, like embroidery, knitting, crocheting, painting, drawing, needle felting, and resin, but always comes back to clay at the end of the day! She has now started a business surrounding her love for clay, taking custom orders and making things like earrings and keychains!
Materials Needed: Polymer Clay (to find a good starting pack, you can go to Amazon and search "Sculpey sampler pack" and click the "Classic option". This one has all the colors, and the listing looks like there are two neon green blocks, but in reality it is a dark and light green. This is the one I recommend for starting, it is soft and good for simple - intermediate pieces. The clay I use is by Fimo and I have the 30 color sampler pack from Joann's, so if you would like a more advanced option, this is good. However, the clay takes more work to get soft and may not hold small detail as well.) You can also buy tools, but household things (like toothpicks, and old toothbrush, and a boxcutter) work just as well!
