Polymer Clay Jewelry Workshop
Saturday, March 3 from 12 to 3 p.m.
Learn how to work with polymer clay to create beautiful pendants for necklaces and earrings with Karen Tretiak, local jewelry artist. We will explore many texture techniques using impression sheets, stamps and found objects. In addition, the workshop will teach coloring methods with metallic powders and Adirondack inks. We will “fire” the jewelry pieces in a regular oven and then learn how to attach them to ear wires and chains, leather or ribbons. Students will be able to create more jewelry at home using these techniques. Come join the fun, laughter and creativity!
$45 per person, all materials provided.
