What format does a beginner's class take?
At an adult beginners workshop, we choose colours, learn how to condition the clay so it's ready to use, and make some basic shapes and patterns in the clay.
We then will learn how to reshape, reduce and recombine the patterns in order to generate the beautiful millefiori effects.
We will then turn that clay pattern or 'cane' into a range of items including pendants, cufflinks, earrings, key rings, and sometimes bracelets.
I don't take ovens to workshops so you'll be collecting all your creations in a special wallet with full curing instructions so that you can cure and finish your pieces at home.
