A Unique Way of Organic Caning - Full of Depth and Color! - TWO DAYS! - NEPAG, Franklin, MA (Greater Boston area, USA

 To register, contact Patricia Nero at patricianero@cox.net

This is a technique based workshop, not a project specific workshop.

In this 2 day workshop, students will gain a solid understanding of how to make the canes I use in my work, using hand pigmented, translucent polymer clay. Different materials for pigmenting will be covered, and the different effects one can achieve. I will also show the best ways I've discovered to laminate with these translucent canes (using polymer clay armatures we will make in the workshop). The goal of this unique cane technique is to add depth and movement in polymer cane work, as well as gaining control of the colors one uses. I'll also cover how I make my river rock beads and brooches. I pack as much as I can into my classes, so be ready to soak up as much as possible! Students may not finish a project, but that is ok! They will leave this workshop with a head full of ideas and inspiration, and a nice collection of canes to play with.

My approach to teaching is to help my students reflect on their own creative process, raise issues that are important for the creative soul to survive and grow, and ultimately... help students find their own unique voices.

Skill level – intermediate to advanced

Cost: $200 USD for NEPCA members, $250 USD for non-members
