My name is Clare McKnight. I am a mother of two children, now 27 & 24.  17 years ago, whilst trying to think of a different birthday party activity for my daughter, "Fun with Fimo" was born, it has developed over the years and has now become a very popular activity.
FUN WITH FIMO CLAY, is a wonderfully educational and creative activity which is aimed at children aged 6 years and over. (Although I do enjoy teaching adult groups from time to time as well.)

The sessions are fully supervised, non-messy and a lot of fun. they are taught in a controlled, step by step way, which allows everyone in a mixed ability group to be proud of their achievements. It  gives the children a sense of proportion and develops their hand eye coordination and use of colour. The items, jewellery, animals or photo frames to name but a few, can then simply be baked to harden in a home oven and kept as ornaments or given as gifts.

During term time, I run a Fun with Fimo after school club at two schools. Notting Hill and Ealing High school and St James in Olympia. I run regular themed whole day workshops during the school holidays and will also come to you for a birthday party session, the children are always so proud of what they have created, you can even avoid the need for party bags!!

I also demonstrate for Staedtler UK, who manufacture FIMO and love to show other people how to use this versatile and colourful product.

I hold a full CRB police check.

On the days that I am not teaching or  working on new projects, I love to spend time  on our two allotments nearby where I grow most of our vegetables and keep 26 chickens and 60,000+ bees !  I also enjoy, running with my Weimarana dog Gus  and have two Siamese cats Algie and Artie. Who are all a very popular with the visiting children.
