About Your Host

Jenny Lemons is a colorful, modern line of hand-painted & block printed women's clothing and home goods run by San Francisco-based artist, Jennie Lennick. Her retail store in the Mission District is a community space where she facilitates DIY workshops, produces her products, and showcases the talents of other local artists. All products offered are manufactured locally in the San Francisco Bay Area. We are passionate about teaching others to slow down and create things by hand. We love helping our students make items to beautify their homes and give as gifts while learning traditional craft techniques. All of our teachers are formally trained artists, and bring this perspective into their teaching- we encourage students to experiment, express themselves, and have fun!

What we'll do

Discover the magically easy and fun process of modeling with polymer clay! With the guidance of artist Julia Sackett, we will mold clay to make our dreams come true. In this class we will learn marbling and shaping techniques, as well as how to add detail and decoration with simple scraping tools. Everyone will focus on two clay projects that will be baked and finished in class. To warm up, we will all make a few polymer magnets to decorate your fridge! For our final project, choose from a clay pendant statement necklace or polymer bead wall hanging. We have lots of beautiful linen fabric scraps, thick cotton cord, rope, yarn, and twine to work into your projects. Let your creativity loose! This 2.5 hour workshop includes all materials, snacks, beverages, and a 20% discount off of everything in our shop! Julia Sackett is an artist, a craftsperson, and an educator, and one half of Yes Crescent, a textile company that produces useful and beautiful accessories and objects for the home. She has been dying with natural dye for five years, and loves how transformative the process is.
