Upcoming Workshop in New York City…

 Confident Color/ Tropical Flower Inspirations
Two day workshop with Lindly Haunani
Saturday June 5th and Sunday June 6th, 2010

For registration details please visit the New York City Polymer Clay Guild’s web site here

 Make a sumptuous tropical floral arrangement using simple polymer clay canes that can be used as a focal point for a necklace or be worn as a brooch. Several of the most amazing, inspiring joys of nature including torch ginger, birds of paradise, orchids, ferns and palm fronds will provide inspiration.

Lindly will walk you through designing and mixing a cohesive color scheme that includes lights, darks, petals, leaves and appropriate background colors for your cane collages.

Then learn how to construct the blended canes and practice some useful sculpting strategies. Pulling the assemblage together, as a series of wearable color sample brooches will be part of the fun learning experience

Join Lindly Haunani, a nationally recognized colorist for a fun and illuminating weekend workshop. While you may know just what colors you like, exactly how to mix them, using them in harmonious combinations can be challenging. Learn how to add impact to your polymer clay work with increased color confidence. Ask questions, be ready to laugh and increase your color confidence.

This workshop is appropriate for a beginner or as a refresher/expansion course for the more experienced polymer clay artist.

Colorful Links…

analyzingcollagecolors2Two weeks ago I had the opportunity to teach a workshop for the Southern Connecticut Polymer Clay Guild- Dancing with the Rainbow- . Two of the artists in the group have posted about their experiences on their blogs

The European polymer clay community has a new web site- Voila!  This week their design focus is “Colour” 

It has been delightful to read Jeanette Kandray’s new blog- as she works through the exercises and projects in Polymer Clay Color Inspirations- which includes her experiments with Kato clay primaries.

Our  book is featured in the November 09 issue of Crafternews– a newly launched crafts newsletter – the “Read Full Article” link brings readers to a summary of the book, sample pages, and links to reviews.

What a  fun and illuminating week we all had at a spectacular vacation rental, The Butterfly House,  north of Santa Fe, New Mexico  …  and Yes!
