Inky Polymer Explorations (November)

$50.00 $105.00

Take your inky polymer pieces to the next level in this brand new exciting workshop from Leanne Fergeus.

You will learn about alcohol inks techniques for polymer clay and how to combine these with other surface techniques. Learn how to combine these fabulous mediums with techniques such as stenciling and silkscreening (with a twist!) to take your pieces to the next level.

Please Note: This is a technique based, intermediate workshop so you will come away with a number of polymer veneers ready to create your own pieces at home (or at a Tutored Access session at a later date).

This class will run with a maximum of 10 students
