Polymania 2019

Get creative with alcohol inks and a unique crackle that is oh-so! yummy.  Our main aim in the workshop is to create with alcohol inks and highlight its versatility by demonstrating a range of techniques on both raw and cured clay.  I’ll show you firstly how to create crackle leaves (or whatever shape your heart desires).  We’ll then work on a range of veneers using alcohol ink, powders and foils and can then mix and match these veneers with our crackle to create some exciting combinations.

Polymania is a 3 day polymer clay workshop held at the 4 star Mercure Holland House Hotel and Spa, Redcliffe Hill, Bristol, BS1 6SQ, UK  on 8th-10th  March 2019.

This event is sold out.

Clay Out West 2019

This event is being run in Albuquerque, New Mexico from 30 Sept - 3 October 2019.  I'll be sending out a newsletter with registration details soon - otherwise you can check out the Clay Out West Facebook page.

Here is my workshop description:

Birds In The Outback

You could be forgiven for thinking Australia is a vast expanse of “nothingness” full of red dirt and sheep or cattle.  In fact, Australia is home to many beautiful birds.  One of the rarest birds on this planet  just happens to live in the Australian Outback – The Outback Polymer Pigeon.  We’re going to attempt to replicate the amazing feathers from this bird which won’t be easy but, with guidance and a little bit of artistic creativity, I know we can do it.

I’ll be sharing a few different veneer techniques, incorporating silkscreening, stencils and foils.  I’ll also share with you, my technique for constructing the feather and applying additional “art bits” to create a truly unique look. Finally, I’ll be demonstrating how to create a professional finish which will turn your feather from “ho-hum” to “woaw-yum”.

I sure hope you can join us!
