I teach classes in my shop. Mostly, that’s polymer clay and, mostly, that’s to kids aged 6 to 10. I’m not sure why it ended up being kids but for some reason parents spend a bunch on edutainment for their kiddos and I’m okay with that. In fact kid classes rock for a variety of reasons:
- Training up creative thinkers
- They make really great tutorial testers and bug finders
- Growing my clay market
Of course, there are days when even the best kids are whirlwinds. The penguin ornaments above – pretty great huh? – were made on one of those days. And that’s when you just have to hold on for dear life.
