DEVER – A PERFECT UNION: When Wire Meets Clay (2-day Pre-conference Fri. 17 Feb. and Sun. 19 Feb. 2012)

This two-day workshop employs wire-working and polymer clay form building techniques to create innovative small-scale sculptural forms in jewelry.  First we will fabricate wire frame armatures and complete basket forms with a tinkered wire-wrapping technique. Next, we will explore original polymer clay forms through staged clay layering and multi-cycle curing to complete pieces.  Finally, we’ll look at finishing techniques with an emphasis on an array of surface ornamentation options. This is a technique workshop, not a project class, therefore all students should have a basic working knowledge of polymer clay. There will be a small kit fee for this workshop. To register for Jeff’s workshop, download registration form here
