Favorite hand building tools

needle tool, scissors, ribs

any 2 rulers of the same thickness

one sponge - cellulose works well


small & larger rolling pin  

Teaspoon measure

Exacto knife or similar cutting tool

1-2  1” wide, flat brushes – cheap/found in hardware stores.

3 “ wide Quilting ruler 

This ruler is very handy .. if you are serious about making canes and patterns I recommend getting a sturdy one 3” w x 18” long. If not, just buy a lightweight one.

Spray bottle

Gallon & quart Zip lock plastic bags – approx. 6-8

6 – 8  old t-shirts/cloths - for wrapping work in progress

2-3 strips of non textured fabric ( like old bedsheets )for working on

Mine are about 18” wide

Small covered plastic container to hold slip if you want to take some home with you.

12” wide non-slip work surface … heavy pre washed canvas works well if you can find some. Some students have used the hand building size of SlabMats. Craft Mats also available online at Dick Blick’s.

Note* light weight fabrics slide too much to be useful … test your choice of surface before bringing it.

dry-cleaner bags or plastic bags for overnight storage
