      We are going to have an Easter Theme

      with polymer clay!

      Class taught by Pam Troutman

      Class fee is $30 with no kit fee

      (polymer clay kit provided by BSNM)

      Fee collected at the class.

      Pam will teach how to make Peeps and egg-shaped beads, and will have bunny and duck molds for those who want to press and play. Of course, you can make any shape bead and design them as you'd like.

      If you bring your own clay, you will need:

      • yellow (for Peeps chicks) 
      • robin's egg blue, plus other colors if you want them to be decorated eggs 
      • If you have a clay-dedicated pasta machine - condition your clay ahead of time so you can get right to work in class.
      Dark brown or black for the chicks' eyes will be available. 

      You are encouraged to change colors to fit your style and trade clay with other class members.

      We will have multiple ovens (at least three), and several pasta machines for conditioning the clay.

      If you have an old toaster oven that you are willing to bring, we welcome the extra baking power.
