Why Attend a Workshop? For results like these !

I am so jealous of all the people who are in a position to attend a workshop with one of the soooo many wonderful polymer clay teachers that are out there. I see pictures and I can not help but drool. If I’m drooling (and dreaming) then I choose to have you doing the same thing. LOL

Look at the student photos from this Kathleen Dustin Workshop that just happened on May 19 & 22, 2011 in Schaan. That’s in Germany I think.

This next photo is of the cuff bracelets students made during a class with Bettina Welker in Linz Austria.

And another of Bettina’s classes making Etched Pendants.

These pendants and mosaic boxes were created in classes taught by Anke Humpert

Tiles bracelets stamped with chalk taught by Jana Lehmann

Canes made in Leigh Ross’ Millennium Garden workshop

And what they made with the canes 🙂

I seriously need a clay time fix now. How about you ?
Happy Claying !!!

Pioneers Of Polymer Clay

I want to give a heartfelt thanks to all the pioneers of polymer clay. They stretched their imaginations to show us what this incredible art medium called polymer clay is capable of creating. If it were not for them I doubt any of use would be making the amazing pieces I see coming to life every day.

I found a wealth of information and pictures over at the Polymer Art Archive. If you haven’t checked it out in full, you really should ! The following are bits & pieces from the archive.
