Beads, Buttons, Bags and more!

West Country Creative is run by designer/maker Jo Hunter. My range of creative and inspirational workshops features either oven-bake polymer clay or precious metal, silver clay. These include bead and silver jewellery making classes, button making, workshops to make a Tote or Messenger bag with co-ordinated buttons and even Christmas decorations!

I teach in the light and airy studio space of my home and classes are relaxed, supportive and fun. Sessions are limited to 8 students so I can tailor my teaching to suit you, whether you’re a complete novice or have more experience. I hope every class will give students the inspiration and confidence to continue making at home.

Located just outside the pretty village of Lifton on the Devon/Cornwall border and just a few minutes from the A30, Plowden Park is less than an hour from Truro, Plymouth, Newquay or Exeter. Classes start at 10.00am and finish around 4.00pm. I don't like anyone to go home with an unfinished project, so if you need a bit more time, that's fine. Materials and equipment, a light lunch and refreshments are all included in the course fees with the exception of my sewing classes where you will need to bring your own fabric and sewing machine.
To book a class on a date to suit you, please call 01566 784713. I accept most major debit/credit cards and Paypal. Course details and a map will be sent on receipt of payment.

If you have any access needs or dietary requirements, please let me know when you book so I can plan the day accordingly. 


 I am able to bring courses out to craft groups, WI's, U3A's etc on request so, if you have a group who would like a bespoke 1 hour mini session or a half-day workshop, please give me a ring or send me an email to discuss your requirements!


 My e-newsletter normally goes out 3 - 4 times per year. If you would like me to keep you up to date with forthcoming courses, let you know about new workshops that have been added to the programme or you'd like to know  about local shows and exhibitions that I'll be attending, drop me a line here, and I'll add you to my list!
