Polymer clay charms
Wednesday 6th June
During this workshop you will be able to choose four colours of polymer clay and make some charms of your own design (we will supply plenty of ideas). You will be supplied with the tools and materials you need to make your charms. You can either leave them with Miriam for baking, or take them home yourself to bake. Charms made early in the workshop may even be able to be baked during the workshop time. You can make as many charms as you want with the clay supplied, and if you have time and want to make more, there will only be a small charge for extra clay (charged by amount used, priced at cost). Miriam will guide you through various techniques and tips for working with polymer clay.
Make your own nail polish
Wednesday 20th June
Miriam will take you through how to make your own nail polish, where to get the supplies you need, and some hints and tips for making the best nail polish you can. You will be supplied with the materials for making three mini polishes, which you will plan and make yourself. If you wish to make more during the workshop, you there will be a small charge (less than the retail price) per extra bottle ($2 per bottle).
Wednesday 4th July
During this relaxing workshop, Miriam will guide you through the basic folds needed for making origami figurines. Once you have the basics down, you can either continue to follow along with Miriam's guidance, or strike out on your own from the instructions in a range of origami books which will be available. You can make as many origami pieces as you want during this hour, and you take everything you make home with you.
Wednesday 18th July
During this workshop you will make some pieces of resin jewellery. Miriam will talk about how to work with resin. We will be using UV resin so that it cures quickly in a UV lamp, but will also talk about two-part resin and how to use that (and where to get it). You can make rings, pendants, gems, cabochons and domes. Each person will receive the supplies needed to make four pieces of resin jewellery. If you want to make more during the workshop, there will be a small charge for the extra supplies ($2 per item).
