Polymer Clay Slabs Class: Create and Sip

Learn how to work with polymer clay slabs and create your own jewellery



2.5 hours Class size 4 to 10     label $120

When the sun goes down the wine comes out! This night workshop includes a glass of champagne or wine to sip on as well as the usual tea and coffee and some nibbles to munch on during the Q&A break.

Working with cutout shapes, extrusions, texturing tools, and block clay, you will discover how to build your own polymer clay slabs. No prior experience needed!

Once built, slabs can be used as texture or veneers on other projects and are also a useful design element for custom jewellery. Learn how to roll out slabs without losing the effect of your patterns and how to use the left over pieces from a slab for new projects.

Once completed, slabs will be turned into components for jewellery and cured.

You will learn how to create a professional finish on your components and take home several completed jewellery pieces.

Jo was a fantastic teacher - she accommodated our hens party group at the last minute and helped us through some tech difficulties when booking. In the class she was so fun and helpful! She has a very clear eye for design and was able offer all the best guidance. The class itself was an absolute blast, loved creating something so different and unique. I love that I have such an awesome little momento of our weekend stay. Would highly recommend this activity for a bridal shower group.

The teacher Jo and her friends were amazing! Great fun and clearly very experienced. There was a wide range of materials and clay colours, and we were supported to express our own unique style. Jo and Rain went above and beyond to accommodate our group, who were there on a hens weekend.

Generous with their time and fantastic fun instruction with some hilarious humour mixed in. Brilliant to come out of the workshop having created multiple pieces of jewellery, all while having a tremendous time.

Laura Boehm Apr 2021


Jo was so accommodating and generous hosting this class for us with only a few days notice. Jo was a fantastic teacher, and made a very comfortable and fun environment to learn (we loved your wicked sense of humour!). They were very patient with us and stepped us through everything we needed to know to make something amazing. No one in our group of six had ever made Polymer Clay jewellery before but we all walked out with a number of beautiful, unique pieces that we will treasure and wear proudly. Thank you so much to Jo and Rhain for helping make such a special day for Lauren our Bride-to-be and the hens crew- we will be raving about your class for a long time!
