I’ve always wanted to be able to teach in a home studio and now I’m fortunate enough to have the space to do it! Last Saturday was the first class, we made polymer clay books that look like candies for Valentine’s Day.
One of my favorite aspects of teaching is that after I share basic techniques, my students create their own versions using their own ideas and vision and this class was no exception:
Stephanie used fondant molds to create elegant embellishments for each candy.
Nancy made candies with debossed details and custom-made accents.
Carol decided that her book needed to fit entirely inside her candies and so she made thicker candies with a space for the paper to nest.
We had a great time and left with wonderful gifts for our loved ones. Thank you, ladies, for making the first class so fun!
In March , a complete change of pace – I’ll start technology classes. Greg is busy planning the large screen install so that my students will be able to learn techniques in technology programs for artists such as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements and Lightroom.
The candies are gorgeous! I’m looking forward to the Photoshop Elements classes.
