I learned something new!!
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I've seen the clapper on tv and in the fabric shops. Like a round padded wooden block.
The clapper isn't padded, the wood needs to absorb the heat.
I came across this site, they have all kinds of pressing tools like the clapper and the silicone iron rest and the teflon applique sheet.
Would love to hear more details about the class. Was your class done by a representative of a company? This could be a nice program at our guild.
Once again, I learned something new. Thank you!!

I use a clapper when I am making spiral type blocks. I really makes a big difference. I have all of the hams and sleeve pressing tools. It is really something once you have you can't sew garments without.

Clapper on amazon, 41 dollars, nancys notions 16.95. There is a difference in shape.
That one sold on Amazon by that dealer is way over priced. They are sold at other online shops for much less. Look at this one:
