Really big triple dot beads (...or bowls)

with Laurel Swetnam

Saturday, Dec 7, 2019, 9:30am – 4:30pm Register


Channel your fashionista urges by wearing REALLY big beads or a pendant, or if jewelry doesn’t appeal, make a small bowl These huge cane collaged pieces are eye catching and versatile.

I will demo three ways to use cane collaged disks cut from a 2.5 inch cutter – a curved bead, a reversible pendant and a bowl.  You’ll learn how to construct beads to be strung or hung in different ways dor to form a little bowl over a surprising form.   You’ll choose one project for the class, and take home leftover canes to try the other two at home.

Small bowl

And of course it’s all about those dots which are used as part of a cane and as applied surface decoration. This class is appropriate for confident beginners and above, and the techniques are useful for many projects. A supply list will be sent to students.

Boxes with Lea Gordinier

with Guest Instructor-Lea Gordinier

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.
