MOONLIGHT CITY EARRINGS

WITH MELISSA TERLIZZI

Join Melissa Terlizzi to learn how to build a pair of miniature moonlit city earrings out of polymer clay. Let your imagination run wild, and become the architect of tiny skyscrapers! In this class, you will use common tools and textures you have on hand to create roofs, windows, bridges, and farmland. Each little skyline will dangle from a full moon post earring, but could easily be adapted as a pendant or brooch.

 

Melissa will walk you through every step— from how to sculpt the land and buildings and finish the back of the earrings, to how to paint on the shadows and brightly lit windows. Don’t miss out on this fun class!

CREATIVE ASSEMBLY

WITH NOELIA CONTRERAS

1/1

A large part of Noelia’s creative time is spent thinking and trying out new assemblies and ways of representing a very basic idea that becomes more complicated as she works. “To be able to create almost any connection in clay, making pieces that can be interchanged, and bring something “extra“ into a creation that makes it more interesting has always been a bit of an obsession of mine,” she says.

 

During this course, Noelia will give a review of the assembly processes she has been making over the years and will do a demonstration so that you can join her creative world.

MAGIC FROM POLYMER SCRAPS

WITH WIWAT KAMOLPORNWIJIT

Reprocessing polymer scraps is essential for our need to not be wasteful, to use and repurpose, rather than discard polymer clay scraps. Piles of scraps of mixed colors can be turned into veneers with unique texture and color patterns using very simple techniques: cut and paste!

 

Join polymer clay artist Wiwat Kamolpornwijit to explore other ways to repurpose polymer scraps into a new veneer. In this play session, Wiwat will share how he manages and recycles his polymer scraps.

NATURAL FORMS

WITH WENDY MOORE

Most of us know that polymer clay can be used to make very realistic natural forms. And that it looks wonderful when combined with real natural forms. Wendy Moore loves engaging with nature and tries to make it part of her day.

 

Join her as she demonstrates how to use polymer clay and pastels to create a beautiful wearable piece that can be combined with organic materials you love. It might just encourage you to walk in nature more! Wendy will demonstrate how to create a very organic-looking form and then show how to use veneers to create the stone vessel.
