Queer Social Footscray: Big Bold Polymer Clay Jewellery with Maria

This event has passed Buy Tickets

Event description

Polymer clay is an accessible, colourful and versatile material - a lot of fun to use, but even better with some introductory tips to get you going.

There are different types of clays and bake times, and different techniques to create shapes, blend colours, emboss, and express your colourful polymer visions!

We'll put this into practice and everyone can make a pair a polymer earrings, with different types of backings (studs, hooks and clip-ons). There are no rules when it comes to your design - big, bold, mis-matching - whatever you create is singularly yours!

This event will be half social chats with a bunch of like minded queer people and half fun, educational and interactive workshop.
