Unleash your creativity while meeting others in this interactive program on clay creations! Join Clay Artist Liz Kitchens as she guides you in designing your own necklace, bracelet, and/or earrings using colorful polymer clay beads. Kitchens will demonstrate a simple, quick procedure: how to condition, cut and sculpture polymer (Sculpy/Femo) clay before baking it in a portable oven and stringing the creation into jewelry. Learn how to create wearable art that you’ll want to proudly show off to friends and family!

Special Note: The registration fee includes program materials.

By participating in this session, you can expect to:

  • create clay jewelry in a fun, relaxing and social environment.
  • exercise your creative muscles to think more creatively about your life and wear your creation.
  • understand and experience how your creativity can contribute to personal growth and healing.

This program is presented by Liz Kitchens and hosted by the Winter Park Health Foundation.
