"Whimsical Vessels" Mimosa Make & Take

On Sunday afternoon we were getting crafty! Katherine Buki and her assistant, daughter Zoe, taught us how to recycle glass jars into beautiful and useful storage containers! We also left the class knowing how to make beads and buttons to match any project or outfit!

We first learned how to condition the clay and get it to a point where we could cover our jar lids.

Textures and 3D pieces were applied the clay. Pigments were used to create a shimmery color!
The possibilities were endless... Some of us even started creating pieces to use in jewelry making!
Lori stuck with a color scheme that she loved and had a coordinating set!
