18 Schools in 10 Days.....

.....are we absolutely mad or do we just REALLY love polymer clay????...and so the school workshops begin.

We've had an overwhelming response to these workshops - so much so that we've had to add in extra days to cater for everyone. What an adventure this will be! We'll be working with children ranging in age from 5 - 15 and there will literally be hundreds of them. Projects have been planned which are age specific and each school has been given the opportunity to choose their project and the class that we'll be working with. There are 3 instructors who you'll meet over the next few weeks - Eliza, Rachel and Debbie and we'll introduce you to many of the children and their exciting projects.

These are the schools that are taking part in this incredible project.
