September's clay day will help you get ready for Christmas!

 Clare McKnight will be sharing two Christmassy options for our September clay day.  Pretty tea light holders and heart tree decorations.  You can choose to do one, or both.

Tea lights holder will be formed using translucent clay over a glass jar, with a pierced pattern, allowing the light to shine through the tiny holes.  Clare uses empty 200g Nutella glass jars,  (See her Nutella Brownie recipe below to use up the contents).

Heart are made using scrap clay.  These make attractive Christmas tree decorations. with a subtle sheen finish.  Clare will also show a very simple way t...

Our next Clay Day is coming up - it's on Sunday 25th March... PLEASE NOTE CHANGE OF VENUE!! Details below...

For our March Clay Day, we are looking at working from an Inspirational image.

Interesting images, randomly chosen, will be sent out to attendees a couple of days before the meeting, We hope this will give you a chance to come up with some ideas in advance. Choose any part of the image to work on, let your imagination run wild.  Then at the clay day you can work on your piece.  

At the end of the day we will set out all finished pieces, see if we can match them to the correct image.  And discuss how we got there...

If you would like to take part in the Christmas mash up activity, you will need to bring a blank shape to be covered or, if you can’t do that, make one quickly on the day.
The blank can be any shape or size you want, but you should think about a few things:
1. Weight. Try to keep it light so it doesn’t fall off the tree giving your cat/child/uncle a concussion. We suggest using ultralight (on sale on the day from Clayaround) or creating some sort of hollow form. If you would like more information, contact
2. You might want to use abstract shapes. You will have no input in the covering of the piece, so your tree/angel/gingerbread figu...

We arrived for our September meeting to find Nico’s cafe was closed. What a blow. I was so looking forward to breakfast – a bacon sandwich and latte.

We were expecting 38 for the day and they soon started arriving. On discovering there were fewer tables than usual and the little kitchen needed tidying, we all pitched in and helped. Jo volunteered to go for milk, others cleared space in the kitchen and prepared tea and coffee, while the rest of us helped set up the room, ready for the day’s activities. We used whatever tables could be found, including the two halves of a table tennis table and a snooker table which became the ‘show and tell’ table. N...

Another extremely well attended meeting, with a total of 40 members, the second at our excellent new venue Hugh Cubitt Centre.  A warm welcome to our new members: Suzanne Bourne; Doreen Perry; Lynne Taylor and Lesley Williams.

The atmosphere was buzzing with anticipation for Sue Heaser’s demo on her pietre dure technique.  The show and tell table was set up, but with such a packed day ahead, it was left as an informal ‘have a look’, and not the usual discussion about all the pieces.

Sue started with an introduction to pietre dure, sharing with us how she first developed the technique using polymer clay, wrote a book on the subject and was e...

A warm welcome to new member Gilly.   

The meeting started with Christine leading us through the show and tell items.  As usual there was a wide variety covering different styles.   Allison had brought along the Christmas copy of ‘Making Jewellery’ with her featured tutorial, along with the finished necklace and bracelet. 

New member Gilly had an impressive graduated lentil necklace, especially as she has only been claying since November.  Wendy had been experimenting with recreating Bakelite, and had a variety of brightly coloured pieces.   Toni brought along a box she had covered with textured polymer clay tiles,...
