This past Saturday, I had the opportunity to teach my largest polymer clay pendant class yet! The class was held at a small boutique in Charlotte, NC where I've been selling my jewelry for several years. I was so excited to have 6 wonderful ladies sign up to take the 3 hour class.
In class, students learn the basics of polymer clay, but the approach is very hands on. The students get right to work pressing out their shapes and stamping images and words.

I'm always delighted when I have students who are more adventurous and break outside the box and go beyond what the basic instructions are. This lets me know that they are absorbing the techniques and materials and the creative gears in their brain are turning!

Do you enjoy taking or teaching classes! What are your favorite things to learn or teach? I'd love to hear in the comments.
