Carol Simmons workshop

Sat. 21 Apr, 2012 9:00 am - Mon. 23 Apr, 2012 9:00 am

Carol Simmons will lead a two-day workshop on her 'Intricate Cane Veneers" technique; heavy in color theory and can construction--you know hers are the best!--this workshop is a rare opportunity to attend a master class in  a shorter venue than she normally holds.

Stroppel "Profile Face Canes" at Creative Journey Studios

Sat. 21 Apr, 2012 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
April 21 (10 AM - 5 PM) Alice Stroppel
"Profile Face Canes" $95
Everyone is fascinated by face canes and Alice's profile faces
are no exception. She has developed a technique to make them less challenging
than you would imagine, and will soon have you on your way to fun and funky
characters to use on bracelets, pendants or whatever you can imagine. She'll
guide you through the process and give you a link to download detailed step by
step instructions with drawings, photos and patterns. You'll also get a link to
her video so you can brush up at a later date. She'll also take emails with
questions so you can be sure you will master the class, even if you forget a
step when you get home.

Polymer Clay 3D Illustration

Sat. 21 Apr, 2012 10:00 am - Mon. 23 Apr, 2012 10:00 am

Pacrafts presents a weekand workshop; April 21-22 with instructor Doreen Kassel. Go down the rabbit hole with her for two full days of 3D illustrations with polymer clay!  With years of experience as a professional children’s book illustrator, and adept polymer clay sculptor, Kassel promises a medley of informative technique, story-telling, and illustrative journaling through polymer clay and paint.

In this workshop say what you want to say, what’s important to you, what has been pivotal or difficult in your life, who & what you love, remember, want, etc.  Think of all those stories un-told, that have been passed down, or that have yet to find the perfect stage.

Using polymer clay, students will sculpt in relief over a ceramic tile & paint in a vintage style, with oil paints in multiple steps.  Use color, texture, and design to create a beautiful, personal piece of art
