Learn how to make these fun and expressive Garden Worms in this hand-building/sculpture class. Inspired by one of my favorite characters from Richard Scarrys Busy Town Books, Lowly Worm. These clay worms make a wonderful addition to any garden or planter.
This is one of the most fun classes I’ve done for ClayShare, and I know you will fall in love with making these cute garden worms as well!
This class is perfect for all ages and skill levels.
*** Fun Fact: A group of worms is called a Clew! A Clew, who knew!
