Polymer & Mixed Media Exploration Workshop

You will have so much to explore in this workshop! No matter what your skill level, you will end the day with a whole new set of tricks at your fingertips!

You will explore sculpting with polymer clay to create a butterfly that can be a brooch, pendant or wall piece. You will learn how to form an artful bowl and use powders to decorate it with incised line art. Polymer can mimic stained glass! It’s easy and very addictive – you’ll explore this technique as well.  After creating polymer clay sculptural anemones, you’ll use resin to create a delightful tide pool brooch. But wait, there’s more! You will use epoxy clay to combine polymer and range of embellishments to create a small mosaic piece that can be a personal adornment or a decorative embellishment.

All materials are provided. You just bring your smile!
