Fairies Here and There and Everywhere!
These sweet, whimsical fairies reflect the joy and humor that abounds in favorite childhood tales. Now you can bring this magic into reality with a bit of polymer clay and some tips and tricks from Maureen Carlson, who has made a career of creating clay characters.

If you've not worked with polymer clay before, you'll find it a bit like using a firm play dough. But there the similarity ends. Polymer clay characters, when baked at 275 degrees F in an oven, becomes strong enough to be permanent visitors to your bookshelf, kitchen cupboard, fairy garden or collector cabinet (though fairies need to be close enough to the window to catch a glimpse of the bluebirds flying by or the lilacs in full bloom. They ARE fairies, after all!) Polymer clay characters can be outside, but need to be in a protected place where they are not subject to direct sunlight or constant moisture.

Since sweet faces are harder to create than craggy ones, this class is positioned AFTER the Saturday, August 4 class, where students will learn to make Leprechauns, Elves and Gnomes. These classes compliment each other, so sign up for both classes and build on your skills. There is also a Friday class for kids where they'll learn to make polymer clay dragons. Seems like there's a theme going here!
