January 14 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Description: This is a technique-oriented workshop for all experience levels that can be used in many different applications. We will combine very thin layers of polymer clay and liquid polymer clay with wire. We’ll make elements that are light as a feather! In the class we’ll use the elements to make mobiles, but the technique can be used in different ways; to make jewelry, sculptures, wall hangings or anywhere your imagination takes you.
