Polymer Workshop by Laurel Swetnam
Saturday, January 28, 2012 Laurel Swetnam will present a workshop on polymer jewelry making techniques. The workshop will take place from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Canyon Community Center.
Canes can be used to embellish cards, cover boxes, or make buttons and more. In this class we will make beads that can be strung into a necklace like this one or made into a bracelet and earrings.
After learning how to condition polymer clay and mix colors, we will make three basic canes: a bullseye cane, a skinner blend and a spiral.
These canes can be combined to form many designs. Laurel will demonstrate how make complex designs from basic canes: geometric forms, leaves and flowers. Participants will make one or more combined canes, as time allows. Written tutorials will be provided.
Some materials required, a shopping list will be provided,
with an estimated expense of $10-$15.00.
