Polymer clay is simply clay that is plastic, it comes in various colors and is easily manipulated. Light weight and durable when fired at the correct temperature. During this two-day workshop you will create a 5x7 vessel, box or container using the slab method of construction. Day one will be devoted to design, making veneers and the front and back panels. Day two is construction and finishing techniques. If time allows, a group critique will be conducted. Some experience with Polymer is helpful. A list of supplies needed will be sent 2 weeks ahead of time.
