In this class students will create several canes that will go into their framed pendant piece. If desired they can use the landscape cane from the previous class, June 15 - 17, as the center focal cane.
For this class emphasis will be on tips for making successful micro canes to use in the structure of the frame.

Julie's frames look very complex, but she will teach how she uses templates to create her precise frame construction.
Students will have a completed pendant at the end of this two day class.

MDPAG presents a Workshop SEA TREASURES With Kathy Bingaman
will demonstrate how to add polymer clay to objects including corals, shells, and sea glass using poly bonder and TLS. We finish with mica powders and learn hand-sanding techniques. I am a scavenger, and have gathered items from the beach for years with these jewelry projects in mind. Each found piece “tells you” what it wants to be, and many turn out very humorous! Students may bring their own treasures to work with, or I will provide pieces from my personal collection available at a nominal fee. You will never look at found objects the same again!

Cynthia says, “I spent years as an interior decorator, then a graphic designer and creative manager so I was accustomed to integrating art all around me. My cabinetmaker husband helped me lose all fear of power tools. We tried and failed and tried again and you will benefit from our adventures in combining polymer with wood and other materials.”

4:00 pm Sunday - 4:00 pm Friday with evening studio time

Class Fee: $550.00
Experience Level: All levels

In this class you will explore the art of designing and mixing a coordinated color palette using translucent polymer. Learn the parameters of proportion for tinting and strategies for increasing (and decreasing) the vibrancy of your colors.

Lindly will guide you, step by step, as you make a set of five color-coordinated canes that will feature translucent clay blends, embossing powders and opaque accents. Then you will discover how a simple cane slice can be transformed by manipulating the edges, folding, stretching or texturing and then possibly combined with other shapes to create dynamic volume.

Ends at 4:00 PM on Friday.
Maureen Carlson's Center for Creative Arts in Jordan, MN USA
Experience Level: All levels

If you could create anything that you wanted to from polymer clay and mixed media supplies, what would you make?  Would it be a character, a doll, a wall piece, decorative items, jewelry or yard art?  Would it be made from polymer clay or fabric, Apoxie Sculpt or paper?  Would it involve paint or ink or textures, items from nature or from the local antique stores?

While Maureen doesn't promise that ANYTHING and EVERYTHING is possible during Fantasy Week, she does promise that this will be a week for concentrating on your dreams and visions of artistic success.

Students will be encouraged to imagine, to plan, to learn, to play, to get in touch with that part which yearns to create.
