In this 6-hour workshop, students will explore an adaptation of an ancient metalsmithing technique to imprint eye-catching designs in polymer clay.

Focusing on luscious color and form, we will create a modern version of a tribal stick pendant, balanced with a textured drop loop. To add an extra design element, a vintage watch part and textured metal disc will be attached to one of the sticks using custom-tinted epoxy resin. Lastly, students will be guided through the finishing process…drilling the sticks, sanding, polishing and stringing on heavy gauge wire.

A pasta machine and pliers will be available in class to share, but bringing your own is optimal. Clay is underwritten by Polyform, and all other consumable supplies will be provided by the instructor.
