Polymer Clay Talk/Demo Nov. 25

Friday, November 7th, 2008

button16blu.jpgI will be doing a Talk and Demo about Polymer Clay at Haslett Public Library (5670 School St, Haslett, MI339-2324), on Tuesday, November 25 at 7pm. The talk is free to the public.

Polymer clay is frequently used to make beads and jewelry, and knitters can use it for making custom buttons for their work as well. However, the medium goes into sculpture, practical items and wall pieces as well.

People make musical instruments with it as one part of the whole, and they use it as inlay for wood items such as drums and even a staircase. Book artists sometimes use it for book covers. I’ve used it as a practical thing, to replace a missing or broken piece of something I am not ready to toss in the trash yet.

I have a lovely collection of Polymer Clay pieces by many artists throughout the USA and will bring some of those pieces with me to the event. I think it is important for a teacher to share many styles with their audience, so that the listeners can take in the possibilities and make things in their own signature style rather than echoing the style of the teacher.

I have worked for the Haslett Library twice before and had a wonderful time. It’s a great, friendly, intimate space for such an event. Local folks, do consider joining me that night!
