Class Listings & Descriptions: I teach at an Association that wants to promote hand craftsmanship, knitting, all kinds of jewelry making, drawing, painting... I teach on Saturdays for 8 hours. I teach different levels, (from 1 to 3) not necessarily for beginers or advanced. I see it more as an introduction to more and more materials that you can use with polymer clay.

Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:

"All I can say is that when a student suddenly opens their eyes, instantly knowing how many promising possibilities what you have just taught them has, you realize that teaching polymer clay is the greatest!!!"
