In this workshop, we will explore the early 1960s Op Art movement and learn to make a survey of beads. Most will be created using the
millefiori technique, generally a glass technique, but which lends itself very well to polymer clay. We will be building on vary basic canes, so this course is
just fine for novices to polymer clay and will give a great working knowledge of the medium. We may not have the time to make all the beads pictured, but the most complicated will be explored in depth, and the others will at the very least be discussed and demonstrated. Good finishing is a must, so plenty of time will focus on making well-crafted beads. Click on the workshop title to learn more, and click here to view the entire 2013 catalog.
