Polymer Clay Workshop: Statement Earrings

How to make polymer clay statement earrings



4 hours Class size 1 to 25 (public classes), 12 to 40 label $160


Learn all the skills you need to make a stunning collection of statement earrings, as we touch on the basic knowledge of working with polymer clay. 

Delve into techniques such as marbling, layering, and illustrating with acrylic paint, right through to complex skills like slab development, cutting and finishing. Buzzing with energy, your creativity will be sparked alight with in-depth demonstrations by Sheree from Polly Collective. With every colour of the rainbow, glitters, metallics, pastels and more at your fingertips you’ll have plenty of opportunities to play with polymer clay, use fancy tools and with Sheree’s personal shape cutter collection you will make some super rad gems to keep!

Earrings are constructed after the workshop (as you’ll learn the gluing process takes a bit of time) – however, everything you need to know is taught and any tools or products to complete most of them are provided. This workshop is ideal for beginners and experienced makers who wish to refresh their skills. Experience a true learning environment filled with creativity, fun, and inspiration!

Please note: This class requires at least five students to run. In the unlikely event that we don't get this number of students, we'll cancel the class and fully refund you and inform you via email, so please watch your email a few days prior to the class

Melbourne-based and Kiwi-born, designer and maker Sheree McCready is the brains and hands behind Polly Collective. After moving from NZ to Melbourne, Sheree sought an escape from a career in professional photography and discovered polymer clay. Cue months of research, lots of trial and error, and some truly gnarly creations. Sheree had finally found her niche. She now makes contemporary jewellery and sculpted art under Polly Collective, and is enthusiastic about sharing her zeal for polymer clay craft and its evolution in skills workshops. Sheree’s pieces use a mishmash of squiggles and dots to emphasise the simple shapes and bold colourways of her contemporary style. Her honest, down-to-earth and passionate presentation style will have you just as obsessed with polymer clay as she is.

This is the second class I’ve done with Sheree from Polly Collective and I’ve loved both. Sheree makes her classes enjoyable and informative for both beginners and advance makers. The class provided me with all the tools and knowledge I could have needed and I came away feeling inspired.

Pam Lightley  •  Jan 2021


Great venue and was easy to find. Sheree was fantastic with how delivered the material and her demos, learned so many great tips and tricks. Really enjoyed the day and can’t wait to come back for the masterclass

Michelle Stroungis  •  Dec 2020


So happy I came across this workshop! I really enjoyed Sheree's teaching style and loved that I was able to play with a bunch of different types of clay and tools to understand the differences myself that Sheree mentioned. I learnt a lot from Sheree in a short space of time and I'm looking forward to practising those techniques and developing my skills. Would highly recommend

The whole experience was exceptional. The knowledge coming from Sheree was excellent and delivered not only with humour but no judgement, which meant newbies to this medium (like myself) could fully explore and get creative without any shyness. The group was also delightful and we all had a wonderful time together. The workshop space itself was bright open and inviting and all the attention to detail didn't go unnoticed. I can't wait to do more workshops, both with Sheree and with the workshop facilitators as well.

Sheree was fantastic, very knowledgable, but also fun and engaging. I came away with so much valuable information and new knowledge, and it was bliss to sit for four hours and be creative with like minded people.

This is the second polymere clay class I’ve done and each time you learn something new. Sheree is incredibly knowledgeable and friendly, the classes have a great atmosphere and you get to take home some of your own jewellery as well as a little gift box.

Sheree did an amazing job with giving tips and tricks for our polymer clay earrings! Highly recommend for beginners and it was also good for those who have already got some polymer skills!

Always such a good time at Sheree’s Polymer Clay Classes! Learn so much to take away and try. Many goodies included and lovely to network with likeminded makers with just as much enthusiasm. Sheree is positive and passionate about what she does, and it is always a pleasure to learn from her. Thank you!

Keahny Roney  •  Mar 2020

A wealth of information to go home a start creating.
Loved this class

Amy Vincent  •  Mar 2020


It was fantastic, I couldn’t fault it.
Teacher and helpers amazing.
Great location great day

Louise Francis  •  Mar 2020


Sheree is extremely generous with her knowledge and having additional helpers in the room is like 3 brains for price on 1! Class size isn’t an issue, you get get as much help as you need. Would be useful to research colours and patterns you like ahead of class, but remain open to new ideas on the day. Happily go to more!

Aniko Feeley  •  Feb 2020


Sheree was friendly, down to earth and engaging. The workshop was very informative and hands on with lots of products at our disposal to let our creativity flow. This was my first attempt at playing with polyer clay and with the guidance of the teachers, I produced 4 pairs of earrings that I will actually wear woohoo. I really enjoyed the workshop.
