Kids Polymer Clay Jewellery WorkshopMade By Me Workshop
Unleash their creativity in this fun hands-on polymer clay jewellery workshop!
This workshop is a great introduction to working with polymer clay. We will teach you exactly what polymer clay is, how to work with it and guide you through the process of making your own colourful beads that can be turned into a necklace or keyring.
What your child will learn:
- How to condition your clay
- Different techniques for creating patterns including marbling, terrazzo, gold foiling and more.
- How to shape beads and ensure they are even in size
- How to cure beads in the oven (which we will operate)
- How to string your beads onto a piece of leather or keyring
We believe craft is as much about creativity as it is about connection, so in our workshops your child will have the opportunity to meet new friends and enjoy learning some new skills away from their screens. Class sizes are always kept small so that they enjoy hands-on assistance while they learn and create.
Parents are also welcome to book into the workshop, otherwise if you want to attend but not participate we have another space where you are welcome to wait, help yourself to tea or coffee and catch up on some reading or your socials. Children are OK to be left unattended, as our space is secure and not open to people who have not booked into a workshop. All teachers have a valid working with children check that can be shown upon request.

We have snacks, tea & coffee making facilities and filtered water but can not guarantee the absence of nuts or other allergens. If you are sending a child with specific dietary requirements please send snacks along with your child.
This workshop is suitable for children aged 10+ years, younger children will most likely struggle with some of the steps and potentially lack the dexterity to work with the clay.
