Upcoming Workshop at Maureen’s…

I am thrilled to be teaching again this summer at Maureen Carlson’s Center for the Creative Arts in Jordan, Minnesota. I will be teaching two workshops that are designed to work together- Friday’s workshops is “Synchronicity and Simplicity in Action- bead sampler”

One day Polymer Clay workshop-Friday July 11th, 2008  This workshop is appropriate for a beginner or as a refresher/expansion course for the more experienced polymer clay artist. 

 Join Lindly Haunani, an acclaimed colorist- best known for her sensitive use of color AND her somewhat colorful sense of humor- for a fun and enlightening day.

Expand your repertoire of bead shapes to include pods, petals, twists and tubes while learning exactly how to make these shapes successfully using polymer clay Strategies for combining canes and tweaking their profiles will be presented. Learn how eccentric bead shapes can enhance or establish exciting stringing rhythms while experimenting with scale, proportion and emphasis.  

You will learn how to make a “perfect” Skinner blend that will be fashioned into a subtle shaded round blend that incorporates contrasts of value and saturation. You will then use your “mother cane” to construct ten different beads that reflect the synchronicity of simplicity to unify your bead sampler.


Come with your two magical hands and your sense of humor: be prepared to be amazed and leave with an enhanced sense of your artistic sense and a beautiful sampler of beads. 
Note: If you plan to stay for the weekend workshop Fantastic Fish, the canes you have made on Friday can be incorporated into your three dimensional fish
