Have you heard of “miniature food?” Miniature food are tiny clay models made to look like food items. They’re fun and easy to make, so even beginners can make them with confidence! Whether you’re a child or just young at heart, you can make your very own miniature food item.
There’s nothing quite like the fun and excitement of making a model of your favorite food, or the feeling of accomplishment when you’ve completed it. Experience the fun of Japanese miniature food and the joy of working with clay, all in one workshop!
In this class, you will learn how to make a bento (Japanese box lunch) about 3cm in length. Even beginners can make a simple miniature bento out of polymer clay, including rice ball, grilled salmon, broccoli and other “ingredients.”
*The clay articles dry naturally. You can take your miniature food home with you after you’ve made it.
