$ 150  

Have no fear. Get fabulous results from shrink plastic. These are so fun and bright. We’ll cover ways of coloring the plastic, both in method and design. As we shrink our items we’ll use Julie Haymaker’s Shrinket® Molds to add interesting shape and form. Once cooled, which doesn’t take long, we will combine our pieces with beads and wire wrapping head pins to create unique elements to use as the main focus in necklaces or combined to fashion bracelets, etc. I’ll have my collection of beads for you to play with and browse through. I am bringing a variety or head pins to use as well. You should leave with 6-10 or more finished elements by the end of the day.

$5.00 supply fee paid to instructor at beginning of class includes:
a sheet of clear shrink plastic, sand paper, head pins and use of my pencils, pens, ink pads and rubber stamps, hole punches and heat tools. I will have extra shrink plastic available for student use.

Students bring to class:
Scissors, black sharpie, colored pencils and pencil sharpener, round needle nose pliers, flat nose pliers
Optional: small hole beads no larger than 3/4” in diameter in colors you love, light.
