Get your Christmas preparations started early!

September 1, 2019



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 to make colourful and attractive wire hangers for any kind of decoration.
