Let’s make beautiful, ceramic, contemporary styled beads & lovely, simple, minimal/geometric ornamentations for yourself or as some awesome gifts. Come on out to this clay class & explore the nature of the medium through bead making! In this class you will learn all about the workings of clay, stages, resources, definitions & terminology. You will also get loads of ideas to make different kinds of minimally shaped, contemporary shaped beads to eventually string, cord & ornament in different ways. You have the potential to make enough hand-built beads for several necklaces & wraps as you'll have plenty of time to make multiple shapes & experiment with the underglazes & sgraffito in this one day class. We will be using a white clay body & you will have many different underglaze color choices to choose from for the color section. After the class I will take your beads to be fired in my kiln & you will get your beads back within 2 weeks. This is an excellent class to be thinking: handmade holiday gifts!!!

*no clay knowledge or former experience needed, however, if you have some, (or a lot) great!

a love for pretty, lovely, handmade items joined with all things vintage makes jenifer a happy lady. she loves to create in just about all ways; she’s a knitter, a canner/jammer/pickler, a collagist, a self proclaimed image taker & maker, a clayer, a draw-er, a painter, a semi-seamstress, a jewelry maker, & a baker, but unfortunately, just not a candlestick maker. jenifer has been making handmade items & selling since 2004, formerly under the name sprout studio. 

jenifer has been teaching in various settings for over 15 years. she’s taught at camps, workshops, studios, conferences, & in many classrooms to ages 5 years old to 70+. she often teaches at makeshift society & handcraft studio school in emeryville & numerous other bay area studios & centers. sometimes she teaches out of the comfort of her butchertown home.

she currently is a kindergarten through 8th grade visual arts teacher in downtown san francisco. in 2014, she was awarded the herbst excellence in teaching award. even though she has a southern heart & hails from the southeast originally, she feels lucky to call san francisco her home.
