Join Diane Kuehn for a three-day workshop to learn the basics of polymer clay, making veneers and turning them into finished jewelry.
Polymer Clay is a medium that can easily be used in a home studio, without a lot of expensive equipment nor a great deal of space. This workshop will give you essentials for working with polymer clay, whether you’ve never touched it before or have had some experience with it. You’ll learn about tools, how to condition clay, blend colors, form shapes, properly cure the clay, and finish your cured pieces. We will use two techniques to make veneers which will then be turned into jewelry. Each student will leave with at least one completed pendant and a pair of earrings, along with the knowledge of how to make more.
Modern day artists are using polymer clay in so many unique and clever ways. The possibilities are endless. Come discover new ways to put your creativity in action.
Diane Kuehn works from her studio in the beautiful mountains of Western North Carolina to create one-of-a kind wearable art. She primarily works in fiber arts and polymer clay sometimes combining both into a single piece.
Diane's life long attraction to beautiful textiles, motivated her to learn some of the ancient and contemporary methods of dying fabrics. She also offers a line of polymer clay magnetic scarf brooches, earrings and necklaces. An emphasis on color, textures and patterns can be found throughout her work.
