I will provide all the tools and enough clay for the class.
We will out with basic millefiori or mokumegane techniques. Even something simple can look quite difficult. Secrets will be revealed. Beads and veneers will be made.
While your beads cook we will prepare clay for additional work and I will help with individual projects.
Classes will be held at our new studio space.
800 Keefer (our entrance is actually of Hawks Street across from McLean Park)

THE NEXT CLASSES
No classes have been pplanned yet this year but custom classes can be designed to meet individual needs. Do to the configuration of my new studio space I may only be able to accommodate two students at a time in my studio.
SOME OF THE CLASSES PLANNED
FOR FUTURE CLASSES
Millefiori – Millefiori takes its name from a Venetian glass technique. Millefiori means thousand flowers in Italian. I will show you how something that looks complicated can really be quite simple.
Mokumegane – Mokumegane is Japanese for wood grain metal. It refers to a oriental metal working technique.
The Button Basics - This class is for knitters and sewers who would like to add that finishing touch to their work by making their own buttons. It is best to have taken one of my basic classes or have some experience with polymer clay before taking this class.
Press molds and Textures - You will make press molds from your favourite buttons, jewelry or natural object and use these molds to make your exclusive buttons. Metal button backs will be provided. We will also begin to make texture sheet that can have a variety of uses.
Millefiori and Booked buttons - You will review millifiori techniques and make a variety of nearly identical buttons. Booked buttons are all different but use the same colourway.
