Month Flat Week Day

Jeff Dever Workshop in Santa Fe NM

Sun. 4 Sep, 2011 9:00 am - Thu. 8 Sep, 2011 9:00 am


When Wire Meets Clay

This four-day intensive workshop employs wire-working and polymer clay form building techniques to create innovative small-scale sculptural forms in jewelry. First we will fabricate wire frame armatures and then complete basket forms with a tinkered wire-wrapping technique. Next, we will create original polymer clay forms through staged clay layering and multi-cycle curing to complete pieces. Finally, we’ll explore finishing techniques with an emphasis on an array of surface ornamentation options. This is a technique workshop, not a project class; therefore all students should have a basic working knowledge of polymer clay.
