Working with Polymere Clay!

Lapidary Craft Classes!

Working With Polymere Clay

This Month we are going to work with Polymere Clay. Making jewelry does not only confine itself to silver and gold and gemstones. Learning how to use polymere clay can help directly with using silver clay.

Cost $10 . Polymere clay is included. We supply tools but it is always best to bring your own.  Bring molds and any other relavant materials if you wish. Bring ideas you would like to try and we will see if we can work them into the lesson.

We are open Monday 24th to book in but Wednesday is Anzac Day -the club will be closed.  Please ring the club for your booking however it is best to email me on

9:30am start  morning tea provided.. thanks Kathy

March Newsletter, flyers, open day news, thank you’s

Gazette March 2012

First  a big thank you to all who attended the jewelry work shop. We had 12 participate. We worked on our soldering technique and began to understand piercing (no not nose piercing silver piercing)

For our new members and our visitors. Our workshops are completely voluntary, both the teachers and the helpers. Any extra funds that may come in from the day are put right back into the classes for tools and materials.

As I wrote earlier we had a lovely day. Our next work shop is working with polymere clay. We hope you can come. If you have not finished your projest do not be afraid to ask for help from the more experienced members. I definitely will help if you wish.

Our newsletter has quite a bit of information about our upcoming event and if you have more questions please contact myself (Kathy) or Margaret or ring the club and leave messages. Our contact information is on the buddy list. You can also contact me on our email.
