I offer training days for people willing to increase their knowledge and learn techniques for polymer clay in a convivial and relaxed atmosphere.
The classes can take place in my studio in Savigny in the Rhone (69210), 35 minutes away from Lyon by car.
You are assured of leaving with a finished creation as well as a written handout to remember the steps and techniques seen during the class. You will then easily be able to train and to deepen this knowledge at home.
I can also come to you to teach for a group of at least 12 if you are willing to organized a workshop in an appropriate venue.
If you feel concern as an organizer, don’t hesitate to contact me to know the modality for the booking of a workshop.
