Clay Beads--Wearable Works of Art!

Sep 27, 2012 - Oct 25, 2012 6:30-8:30 p.m.

New Dimensions Clay Studio 3333 Maria Linden Drive Rockford, IL
No experience necessary as you focus on creating unique ensembles of artistic beads and translate your artistic vision into wearable art. Make pendants, beads, and accent pieces with a goal of quality, rather than quantity and basics for jewelry pieces that would cost hundreds of dollars in a boutique. Various techniques will be demonstrated including hollow beads, carving, use of molds and textures, using slips and oxides, with both a traditional and Raku firing. Material will be provided to make one small flexible silicone mold. Bring a favorite small object such as a textured pendant, bas relief, or small carving that you would like to reproduce in clay.

Regular Fee: $80 Members' Fee $70. Ages 16-Adult
