Boxes with Lea Gordinier

with Guest Instructor-Lea Gordinier

Saturday and Sunday, Jan 25 – Jan 26, 2020, 9:30am – 4:00pm Register

Lea has turned her wonderful design sense and her construction skills into a fabulous polymer clay box. In this class you will learn the principles and construction of the scaffolding form for this box that can be applied to your future projects. Then we will cover it with a design of clean lines and circles that don’t distort. You will also make a removable domed lid that firmly seats on top. It will be two full mind-expanding days of another avenue for polymer clay.   Experience level: intermediate to advanced.

Leap Into Colour: A Taste of 21st Century Colour

with Maggie Maggio

Saturday, Feb 15, 2020, 9:30am – 4:30pm Register

Come spend the day playing with colour!

Colour surrounds us. It is a visual language that affects how we feel and how we engage with the world around us. Traditional colour theory focuses on colour for artists and designers but our world is changing and colour theory is changing along with it.

There is no better way to get a taste of the complex world of modern colour than by hands-on explorations.  After years of test driving hundreds of colour books and products for studying colour, I selected the best and set up a Colour Explorer Room in Portland, Oregon.

I invite you to join me in the Colour Explorer Room for a sampler of the exercises from my five-day Smashing Colour Week.  I will bring out  a collection of my favorite toys and products and lead you in a series of fun and informative exercises to introduce you to basic concepts in the science and art of colour.

This is not your traditional colour class! Anyone interested in exploring the art and science of 21st Century Color is welcome to come and play for the day!
