Join the Christi Friesen Project – 52 Weeks of Clay with Katie & Christi

Posted on


The Friesen Project

Are you looking to participate in a big event?  What could possibly be bigger than creating 40 projects over one year, in just 52 weeks?  Almost nothing!  This is our first year long blog project and I am asking you to join me as we have some awesome fun creating polymer clay wonderfulness together.  It only takes 5 seconds to register and sign-up to be enrolled in the project.  Want to know more? Read the details below.


Polymer Clay Princess, Christi FriesenWho is Christi Friesen?  Only the most awesomest, down to earth, and most funny polymer clay lady ever!  She has written 9 books that are out in print and another new one Flourish.  [You can get them all from Amazon here]. This project will walk you through various projects from her books.

Christi Friesen and I collaborated together to bring you this project all the way back in 2013. Although the project is now concluded, you can still follow along and get all the tutorials here on the site. These tutorials will require reading on your part and will require you to follow along with a variety of Christi’s books.

Please note that even though this project is FREE, most of the tutorials reference specific portions of the books to complete the tutorials. This was done to protect the integrity of Christi’s copyright on her projects. Can you do this project without the books? Yes. Completing certain projects may be more difficult than others.

Please take note: some of the free projects Christi (and others) use to have in 2013 are no longer available. Those  tutorials have been supplemented with tutorials from myself (both free and paid).



What do you get for participating?

  • You will get a special email with a reminder about your project each and every week.
  • You get to learn something new about yourself, polymer clay & designing every week.
  • You get to be inspired by some of Christi’s awesome design ideas & learn more about her process.
  • You will grow not only as an artist, but grow in your polymer journey.

So now, what do you think?  Do you want to join me?
