Museum in a Box
That moment of opening a box and discovering the secret treasures that lie inside will inspire this class. You will construct a polymer clay box that houses a miniature museum complete with artifacts and text. The "museum" can be one of personal imagery, re-creations of artifacts from an actual culture, or from a culture that exists in your imagination! The artifacts can be created out of polymer clay as we explore several techniques. You can also add your personal treasures collected on your travels through life. Miniature book structures will hold the text for your museum in a box. Come delight in and create a world in miniature from your imagination.
The Unfolding Pyramid
Explore the mysteries of ancient civilizations. Peek through windows, unlock and walk through doors into the world of sculptural books. Using polymer clay, beautiful papers, and other elements, we will create freestanding, three-dimensional "books that are sculptures" or visa versa. Personal imagery, found objects and other mixed media will be combined with polymer clay to create a pyramid structure that unfolds to reveal a hidden surprise. Polymer clay techniques include transferring photocopy imagery, carving and antiquing, making and using three dimensional clay pieces.
We would love for you to join us!
Any questions please feel free to contact me!
