Timeless Treasures
- Exploring Polymer Clay

Timeless Treasures

In this spirited hand-on workshop explore the versatile, exciting, and playful possibilities using polymer clay to create antique and twenty-first century wearable treasures and embellishments for your art. The clay can be carved, etched, printed on, painted, transferred onto, textured, and much more with stunning results. The only tools necessary are a few household items, your hands and your imagination.  We will cover a jambalaya of techniques including making imitative ivory and several ways to transfer images onto the clay.  The satisfying and surprisingly easy art of carving the clay and embossing, texturing and stamping designs into the clay will open up a world of ideas to incorporate into your work.  You will learn how to beadsdesign sheets of clay that look like old ivory and beautiful fabrics- ikats, batik, tapestry, weavings and brocades.  Out of these “fabrics’ you will make buttons, beads, baubles, pendants, earrings and brooches. The mission of the workshop will be to brainstorm and support your designs and ideas.  Polymer clay techniques include working with metallic clays, patinas and paints and a cornucopia of other techniques. Our work will be inspired by the imagery and art work of ancient and far away cultures. Leave the workshop with fresh vision and boundless ideas!
