I will be giving some beginner classes at Seymour Art Gallery in North Vancouver. These are beginner classes where you will get to know polymer clay. If you have had some limited experience I will probably have some useful tips for you too.
The classes are limited to six people so that you can get the individual attention that beginners should have.
To register for these classes please contact Seymour Art Gallery directly. Register at 604-924-1378.

Millefiori means ‘a thousand flowers’ in Italian, and takes its name from a Venetian glass technique. Joan will show you how something that looks intricate and complicated can really be quite simple. Mokumegane means “wood grain metal” in Japanese. In traditional Mokumegane, layers of different coloured metals was worked together and filed back to reveal layers that look like wood grain. This is much easier to accomplish in polymer clay and the results are beautiful and dramatic.
