Polymer Jewellery (Feb 15th)

The Courthouse Thirsk
Saturday 15th February

(£55 + £5 materials)

Make your own unique colourful jewellery with this versatile, easy to use polymer ‘clay’ (Fimo), with the option to create earrings, pendants or rings.

Polymer Clay (fimo) is a fantastic, easy to use, malleable plastic ‘clay’ which comes in a huge range of beautiful colours. It is ideal to use at home, as it is hardened in a house hold oven, needs few tools and is cheap to buy. In this workshop, you will be guided through several simple techniques to make your own earrings, pendants, rings etc. You will then learn how to fire and polish the pieces for a professional finish and finally make them into unique, finished jewellery, ready to wear!

This workshop will be delivered by Jane Burnley, a local artist and jewellery maker who originally trained as a graphic designer in Manchester. She started making jewellery about 12 years ago, as she has always loved it and decided to make jewellery rather than buy it!

Workshops at Rural Arts give you the opportunity to learn or develop an artistic skill in a relaxed, creative environment and are all suitable for beginners. Our tutors are friendly, passionate and have lots of experience and knowledge to share with you. We want your day with us to be relaxed, offering you a bit of escapism and the chance to get to know like-minded people (plus there’s the bonus of getting to take something you have lovingly made home with you!).

Get to know others in the group whilst enjoying a drink in the Rural Arts Café before heading through to the workshop to start getting creative! The Café will be open throughout the day for you to get drinks and delicious lunches and cakes. Visit the café page to view our menu.
