The Houston Polymer Clay Guild is excited to announce that we will host much sought after artist, Ronna Sarvas Weltman on March 26-27, 2011. We are fortunate to have her and urge those of you who can, to attend our 2-day workshop.
Take your polymer clay experience to the next level by combining wire and an organic look into your polymer clay jewelry and mixed media projects.
On the first day, we will explore many polymer clay techniques that can achieve the organic look that defines Ronna Sarvas Weltman work. Techniques will include marbling, texturing, carving, and techniques for increasing comfort and skill with color and pagination of polymer clay.
On the second day of the workshop students will explore more advanced skills, including the practical and aesthetic process of designing successful necklaces, bracelets, brooches, rings and earrings that combine polymer clay and wire. Students will learn how to make their own unique wire clasps and closures. Although the focus in this workshop will be on the creative process, students will have ample opportunities to make finished pieces if they wish.
This workshop is suitable for students with intermediate experience in polymer clay and for students who are beginners to wire work.
