First day to clay - conditioning

This has been a great day. The teacher at our corporation's middle school asked me to come teach a group of her students to make clay bracelets. Today they learned how to condition the clay and put the base beads for the bracelets together. They also learned how to do a Skinner blend and make a brain cane. I learned how enjoyable these students can be. I am looking forward to tomorrow when we can put some "bling" on their base beads.


  1. Beautiful! Working with children has many rewards... mostly emotional.:)

  2. Oh, yes, I agree with you, Sandra. These are wonderful young artists, and I loved having a chance to meet them. So full of fun and creativity.
