Monday 08 January 'FIMO SCULPTURE'
2.00pm - 3.30pm Ages 10 & over
 Fimo poly clay
FIMO is a name for a brand of polymer clay made by Eberhard Faber. Though other brands of polymer clay exist (Sculpey, Promat, Cernit, Friendly Clay, Formello, Modello) FIMO is the best known. Owing to this, FIMO was in danger of becoming a generic term for polymer clay. Eberhard Faber has introduced new forms of FIMO. The Fimo of the early 1990s is sometimes called classic FIMO. This clay comes in many different colors; there are many finishes to choose from, and even a softener to use with it because it can be hard to work. The clay is used for making many things, including jewelry, accessories, and small trinkets. Once shaped, the clay is baked in a standard or toaster oven for about 20-30 minutes to harden it. Once baked, the clay can be cut, drilled, painted, sanded, sliced thin. One use of Fimo is to make dollhouse food and accessories.

Scoubidou is a plaiting and knotting craft that originated in France, where it was already a rage in the 1960s.
Scoubidou or Scooby is also known as Boondoggle in the USA. Scoubidou strands are supple, round, hollow plastic tubes of approximately 80 to 100 centimetres in length. They are sold in various colours, sizes and types. Coupled with various other craft supplies, the strands can be used to make creative items by binding them together using various knotting techniques. The craft of scoubidou is appealing to both young and old, starting with simple designs like key rings and bracelets, through to more advanced scoubidou projects such as pens, Jewellery, magnets, animals and an endless variety of figures.
Not only is it fun, inexpensive and addictive, it also stimulates the imagination and creativity of children, having a positive effect on coordination skills. During the past year, the Scoubidou craze has seen a massive resurgence all over the world and this is now starting to happen down under as well.

Fimo poly clay
FIMO is a name for a brand of polymer clay made by Eberhard Faber. Though other brands of polymer clay exist (Sculpey, Promat, Cernit, Friendly Clay, Formello, Modello) FIMO is the best known. Owing to this, FIMO was in danger of becoming a generic term for polymer clay. Eberhard Faber has introduced new forms of FIMO. The Fimo of the early 1990s is sometimes called classic FIMO. This clay comes in many different colors; there are many finishes to choose from, and even a softener to use with it because it can be hard to work. The clay is used for making many things, including jewelry, accessories, and small trinkets. Once shaped, the clay is baked in a standard or toaster oven for about 20-30 minutes to harden it. Once baked, the clay can be cut, drilled, painted, sanded, sliced thin. One use of Fimo is to make dollhouse food and accessories.
