Learn multiple valuable polymer clay techniques while creating a unique Sea Turtle box in this 1-day workshop taught by Deb Hart. Confident beginners and intermediate and up clayers welcome!

Inspired by Native American culture, this Sea Turtle Box project is a creative mixture of sculpting, cane inlay, and faux stone polymer techniques. The box can be used as home decor, or sized and drilled for hanging as a necklace or ornament. In the process of creating your own unique sea turtle box, you will:

• Create a box form using patterns and a “die form” technique
• Learn at least two simple canes to decorate your box. (More canes will be available for those who want to further embellish their turtles – some free and some for sale)
• Mix polymer clay to make faux turquoise and sculpt the turtle’s body
• Apply an antiquing technique to finish the faux turquoise look

To secure your spot in the workshop, a full payment of $130 is required at the time of registration.
• No refunds for cancellations, unless you are able to personally find a replacement to take your spot in the workshop or there is a waiting list.
• If minimum class numbers (10 participants minimum), are not reached, and the class is canceled, your full payment will be refunded.
• If the class is a go, after May 20th, you will receive a materials list and any instructions for the workshop preparation.
