6-Day Intricate Kaleidoscope Cane Pendant Intensive with Carol Simmons

Mon. 11 Jun, 2012 1:00 pm - Sun. 17 Jun, 2012 5:00 pm

Have fun developing your personal color palette and style while learning Carol’s unique approach to kaleidoscope design and pendant construction. This retreat-style workshop will be an in-depth exploration of the art of polymer clay caning. Topics will include: Color combinations; color mixing; clay management; constructing simple canes; the design, construction, and reduction of complex canes; slicing the cane and manipulating the slices to form numerous, one-of-a-kind kaleidoscope designs; pendant construction and finishing techniques. Participants should be comfortable with basic polymer clay techniques, including a basic understanding of cane construction methods.

This workshop is right after the 2012 Bead and Button Conference in nearby Milwaukee.
