Super Shawl Pins Workshop

Super Shawl Pins Workshop


10.00am - 4.00pm


A shawl pin makes a fabulous fastener for a woolly wrap, a great embellishment on a chunky knit and a unique decoration for a knitted hat or scarf. Come and make two on this one-day course.

Polymer clay is an ideal material with which to make a decorative pin as it is lightweight and won't pull the garment out of shape. In addition to being able to blend colours, you can also mould, shape and texture it to produce fabulous design details, creating beautiful, wearable pieces of art!

Working with an infinite selection of colours and decorative surface finishes, I will show you how to design your pins and how to work with the materials to achieve strong, durable and completely unique pieces. There will be demonstrations throughout the day and lots of advice and tips on good practice. Finishing and polishing techniques will also be covered.

My workshop classes have a maximum of six places for polymer and just four for silver. This ensures that everyone gets plenty of support and help when they need it, and everyone can work at their own pace. There is no minimum number of students required before a class will run so please don't be concerned that once you have booked, your class might be cancelled. Once you have paid, I will send you a Course Information Sheet which is your confirmation that I have received your booking. It includes a detailed map and tells you what to expect on the course and what to bring so, look out for this in your inbox!

If you have any questions at all, please get in touch here or ring me, Jo, on 01566 784713.
