Craft Council of BC is proud to introduce polymer and mixed media jeweler and sculpter Tory Hughes who will be offering a technique workshop for Artists across all disciplines. Tory’s goal for this workshop is to show you how your current aesthetic might be expanded by adding polymer clays to your materials!
Workshop: Saturday, Sept 12 and Sunday, Sept 13, 2015 | 10am-5pm
This two day workshop will introduce you to Polymer clays, an exceptionally versatile and responsive media that can be used in 2-D and 3-D artwork. You control the color, texture, shape, translucency, patterning and more, and can use it to create free-standing forms as well as apply it to other media and surfaces.
In this fast-paced workshop, you’ll learn about polymer clays (we’ll use Fimo Professional) via “Mokume Gane”, an ancient Japanese metalworking technique adapted for polymer to its great advantage.
Leave with 5 colourful finished one-of-a-kind projects:
A little blank book A pendant and pair of earrings
A small box A playful lidded box
A colourful patterned brooch
