We've had quite a few requests for polymer clay sculpture workshops, so here is our second one for the semester.
The first, of hopefully what will be a series of polymer sculpture workshops for the year.

This workshop is a little different from our usual polymer clay workshops as it uses Makins Air Dry Polymer Clay.
In this workshop, you will learn how to build a standing armature on a base.
Using Makins Air Dry Polymer Clay, you will learn how to add a head and arms and drape the armature with liquid Makins and fabric.

This is a great opportunity to learn how to create armatures to use in a variety of sculpture applications.

Don't miss out on this unique opportunity to learn the core elements of doll making and sculpture from one of Australia's best.
Although Lara has been/is primarily our metal clay tutor, doll making is in her family and she worked for 13 years in the family business, which taught porcelain dollmaking and other associated crafts. Because of this, she has had exposure to several excellent sculpting teachers.
She also traveled to the US to study antique doll conservation and restoration.

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students.

Lara has been a tutor at The Whimsical Bead for a number of years however has been 'on leave' for the last 2 and we are so glad that she's back!
Lara has been involved with the Arts and Crafts movement at some level for most of her life.
She worked for 13 years in the family business, which taught porcelain dollmaking and other associated crafts. During that time she was lucky enough to have had exposure to several excellent sculpting teachers, which is her preferred method of expression. She also traveled to the US to study antique doll conservation and restoration.
In early 2014 she returned to the US and completed two Metal Clay accreditation programs and is one of only a few in Australia who has completed this training.
At present Lara divides her creative time between fabricating small run or one of a kind objects and jewellery using contemporary clays and teaching classes in base metal and precious metal clay.
