POLYMER CLAY WORKSHOPS COMING TO CENTRAL PORTUGAL IN JUNE .

Although I have not posted about my crafting for a long time, I haven’t stopped creating.

I have been making greetings cards, polymer & leather cuffs, working on some new polymer jewellery designs for an exhibition in July, and in between language studies have managed to fit in a bit of calligraphy practice.

In June I am running two workshops on creating with Polymer clay, which I am excited about, so I have been preparing for that too.

The first workshop is TEXTURES IN POLYMER CLAY
the second one is MAKING PATTERNS & LEARNING TO MAKE CANES.

WHAT IS A CANE ?

A cane is a cylinder of polymer clay made up using different coloured clays that have been incorporated into the cylinder in a variety of ways to make a pattern .

The pattern runs through the length of the cylinder, ( like Blackpool rock) and can be seen when the cylinder is cut though.

Some canes are simple and use only 2/3 colours, whilst others are extremely intricate and use a dozen or more colours.

Maybe it is easier to understand with photos ?
