Polymer Clay: Textures and Molds with Susan Gantz
Saturday, April 7, 2018
10:00 am – 4:30 pm, ½ hour lunch break
If youve ever dismissed polymer clay as too “cutesy” or a medium for children, you havent seen it in the hands of a master like Susan Gantz! In this class (suitable even for those with no previous polymer clay experience) you will work with, and create, texture plates for surface design, which can then be used with polymer clay to create beads, pins and pendants, wall art, journal covers, switch plate covers and more. Create a plate from nature, using leaves, twigs or flowers; from rubber stamps, and/or from the design of your choice (abstract, repeated patterns, landscapes, drawings). Most supplies provided
, including polymer clay and more: download complete information on what is provided as well as your own minimal supply list
(PDF, 75K). Students can expect to complete several plates of their own designs, and several completed pieces from plates and designs supplied by the instructor. Class fee, $72.00 plus a $15 kit/supply fee.
