Tabakman-translucent canes  lwrs

Explore the subtle beauty of translucent polymer clay. The semitransparent quality of this material can be utilized to add depth to your work, or be finished to a glass-like surface. Take advantage of these properties during the workshop to create translucent-based canes with an organic feel and assemble them into jewelry. 

Woven wire brooch 
- April 23, 2017

In this class students will learn how to use wire to weave a basket-like pod. We will also be working on a series of organic elements that will then be combined to construct a brooch or a pendant.

Polyform very generously will be providing polymer clay for this class.
