Workshop Description

Class #17

Exploring Polymer Clay

Lynne Bergschultz

August 15 & 16 | 9 - 4


Polymer clay is a particularly “user friendly” medium. This class offers both beginners and practicing artists time to explore the clay’s creative potential. Demonstrations will be presented for techniques such as cane building, color mixing, sculpting, using molds, and mosaics. Projects range from pins and pendants, to light switch plates, flatware handles and amulets. Instructor direction is balanced with opportunities for individual exploration. All tools and materials will be provided, but if you have a pasta roller for clay, please bring it. It’s also helpful to bring any projects in need of polymer enhancement. The polymer is flexible and so is the class. Join the fun!

Lynne Bergschultz is an illustrator, designer, educator and fiber artist with a passion for polymer. Since discovering polymer clay over 15 years ago, she has produced countless original buttons, shawl pins, and jewelry. Her work has been published in national craft magazines and sold in galleries, shops (including The Clearing’s Bookstore!) and festivals around the country.
