Pacrafts presents a weekand workshop; April 21-22 with instructor Doreen Kassel.

In this workshop say what you want to say, what’s important to you, what has been pivotal or difficult in your life, who & what you love, remember, want, etc.  Think of all those stories un-told, that have been passed down, or that have yet to find the perfect stage.

Using polymer clay, students will sculpt in relief over a ceramic tile & paint in a vintage style, with oil paints in multiple steps.  Use color, texture, and design to create a beautiful, personal piece of art


Stroppel "Pen & Ink on Polymer Clay" at Creative Journey Studios

Sun. 22 Apr, 2012 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
April 22 (10 AM - 4 PM) Alice Stroppel ""Pen & Ink on Polymer "
 $80 ~ Take both of Alice's Classes for $165 ($10 discount)
We hear "pen and ink" and immediately we panic and proclaim our
inability to draw. Alice will calm your fears and prove to you that you don't
have to be able to draw a masterpiece to create something fun and colorful, and
ready to wear in a day. With a few simple steps she will have you producing your
own fun characters or just brightly colored graphics in no time. If you are
already familiar with pen or brush, this is a perfect way to display your
masterpieces as wearable art.

Alice will guide you through all the steps and send you home
with at least one finished item and the enthusiasm to make many more. This is a
beginner class, although knowing the basics of polymer clay would be a plus, but
not a requirement. She'll show you how to cover bracelet blanks, draw the
designs, add color and finish with a protective coating.  You'll combine some
simple pre-made canes with unusual stamp shapes to create fun face pendants.
Alice encourages you to email questions and photos of your work after the
