10 of our members learnt a new technique using polymer clay and extruders to make jewellery, key fobs, coasters, buttons and hair grips, in the style of Gustav Klimt.
Various coloured clay sticks were sliced, put together to make a cone and put through an extruder tool, emerging as long strips of patterned clay. The strips were stacked, cut, and re-stacked twice. The stack was cut into slices, massaged together and cut into the shapes required. The combination of colours and tiny patterns melted our creative hearts, and we all fell in love with the technique.
I had used my WI bursary money to learn the craft and pass on the skill to others – money well spent I would say. Thank you Bognor Regis WI.
