Date and Time
About this event
ABOUT THE DAY
Each day runs from 10am-4pm and our current venue is Greenside Community Centre, 24 Lilestone Street, Marylebone, London, NW8 8SR.
FOR THIS EVENT, YOU WILL NEED TO BRING:
Basic polymer clay kit - worksurface, blade, roller and pasta machine.
In addition you will need:
100-200g of scrap clay fior the inside of your beads (any colour, you won't be able to see it!)
75-100g of blue clay (preferably Premo, Kato or Fimo Professional). The colour/s are up to you, but darker blues will give you more contrast.
100g of white clay (same brand).
Bead pins / thin knitting needles to pierce your beads before curing.
We usually have one or more demonstrations by volunteers from the group; we try to let you know in advance what these will be and whether you need to bring anything special.
We are a very friendly group and people are usually willing to offer advice and guidance to beginners on an ad-hoc basis. However we often also run a short session for complete beginners, our "Nursery Group" - if you would like to be included in this please let us know as part of your booking.
You may take still photos (unobtrusively!!!) during the demos, but in fairness to our demonstrators, please do not video any of the demos. Please don't post your photos onto Facebook or other social media after the event.
SHOW & TELL TABLE
In addition we have a “Show-and-Tell” table at each Day. Members can use this to display and talk about a recent creation, or to ask for help in solving a problem. If you don't bring anything to show, you're quite likely to have your (polymer!) jewellery removed at the door by Carol!
Please be aware that pieces on the Show and Tell table WILL be photographed and posted on our website and facebook site.
Lastly, the table is called 'Show and Tell' for a reason - please be willing to answer questions abour your process and techniques - that's how everyone learns!
