Mixed Media on Polymer Clay

$50.00 $120.00

Explore the wonder of experimenting with many mixed media items on polymer clay to create some gorgeous pattern sheets/veneers.

Leanne will show you how to combine alcohol inks, pastels, foils and inclusions (plus more!) with the use of stencils, textiles and more to create colourful, interesting, layered designs.

This is a technique based class rather than a project class – you will walk away with many different veneers to use at home – however if you wish to create jewellery components from your veneers (if time permits) you are welcome to do so, however the focus will be on exploring as many combinations of mixed media as possible!

Please Note : Photos are for inspiration only. Students will be encouraged to create their own designs with assistance from Leanne.
This is a technique based workshop so finishing techniques will not be covered.

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students.

Saturday 29th June  2019
