Course Description: Give your garden fairies a bridge, signpost, and sweet stepping stones using easy to sculpt, brightly colored polymer clay. You might know it as Sculpey or FIMO. These pieces will weather several summers in the great outdoors, barring encounters with lawn mowers or clumsy human feet… just like the fairies. These projects are easy enough for beginners, but details can be added by experienced clayers, so this class is perfect for anyone. Do fairies frolic in your garden? Not yet? In this second of 3 May Fairy Furnishings workshops, you can make a bridge, signpost, and special stepping stones to lead them into your own garden realm. Where do fairies live? Just about anywhere and everywhere, but if you want to visit one, it helps to have a door to knock upon. You may have seen these wee doors cropping up on the bases of garden trees, on city walls, or maybe in the home of a friend. Indoors or out, fairy doors are a sweet trend, and a fun project for beginning and advanced clayers alike.
