Handmade Polymer Clay Bead examples for Introduction to Bead Making Course by KatersAcresTomorrow is the big day, my first day teaching a “beginners” level polymer clay classes! Tomorrow’s class is for people who want to know how to make their own buttons, followed by beads, & figurines later this month.  I’m so very excited!

I have everything all packed up and I am ready to go. Since it is a beginners class, I have just 2 hours to teach some wonderful adults how to begin in polymer clay and make some awesome buttons.  Want to learn more and find out how to attend?


Do you want to learn how you can unleash your inner “artsy-fartsy” and make your own buttons & beads to add to your beaded jewelry creations? If you are in the NW Pennsylvania area, feel free to come and join the fun in Meadville, PA.  I am teaching at the local JoAnn Fabrics store.  Currently I am teaching 3 “trends” polymer clay classes including buttons, beads, & figurines; all for beginners.


We will spend the first 30 minutes of class getting to know polymer clay, different types, different brands, and different clay properties. We will spend time together learning how to properly condition clay and some basic do’s and don’ts of working with polymer clay. We will then spend the next one and a half hours turning square blocks of clay into beautiful buttons you can make into something gorgeous, add to a quilt, or any other handmade item.


The basic class fee is approximately $50 plus the cost of materials that you will need to buy before class begins.
