Donna Kato

Donna Kato owes her career in clay to procrastination. You see, she was supposed to find a demonstrator for Kemper Enterprises at what was then known as the ACCI Show, and she didn’t. Having painted herself into that corner, she had no choice but to demo her way out.

Having been born with that “sure, I can do it” attitude, she forged ahead into what were parts unknown and discovered she really liked demonstrating, she really liked the art and craft industry. Through demonstrating, she discovered she loved to teach! She already loved polymer clay so she...

Frequently Asked Questions

If you cannot find the answer you are looking for in your FAQ, please contact us on [email protected]

I am having problems viewing the classes. Any suggestions?

The classes should play fine across all common browsers and operating systems. The only technical requirement is a fairly recent version of the Adobe Flash Player. You can download the latest player for free at http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ . For best possible viewing experience, we recommend above average Internet connections.

If you are experiencing problems such as delays, chopping, freezing or browser crashing, please make sure that you have the latest flash version and are on a stable and fairly good connection. It will also very often help to empty your browser cache.

If you are on a recent flash version, with a good connection, have emptied your cache and still have problems viewing the class, please contact us!

For how long can I access my courses?

Forever. Your access to your CraftArtEdu classes never expires.  You can watch them anytime and as many times you would like.

How do I access the class after purchasing it?

Your class is available to view from your account under “My Account."

I am having problems accessing the class handout.

The class handouts are PDF's  If there is an instructor hand out for your class, it will be in your account on the View Class page link under Material Links.

After taking a class, are you then allowed to use the technique to produce pieces to sell, as long as you reference that it was a technique learned from whoever taught the class? 

"Yes, students can produce work to sell - teachers know that they are putting techniques out there for their students to use. The hope is that the student will apply techniques to create their own unique spin on them, but we cannot take money from students and then say "you can't do that."  We do ask that they give credit to the originator." - Donna Kato

Great class Review by Susan
I've always wanted to learn how this technique was done. The instructions were very clear and I'm sure I can make my own now. (Posted on 10/5/15)
Wonderful technic Review by Carole
Hi Donna, I've saw this technic in your book, but the explanations are far more complete in the lesson. I'm glad I've finally bought it. The result (even for my 1st realisation) was terrific. And as a french speaker, I had no problem to follow your instructions.
Thanks a lot Carole (Posted on 5/12/15)
