WEEKEND TWO (2-day): June 29 – 30, 2019 Classes run 9 am – 4 pm daily and students are welcome to stay late in their studio.
This lively workshop will introduce students to a unique technique for working with polymer clay that will create a crackled, metallic effect that can be used in multiple ways to make vividly coloured creations.
Students will learn how to construct and embellish expressive wall-mounted “Muses”, three dimensional compositions on canvas, and funky earrings and pins.
The workshop is appropriate for all students who have basic hands-on polymer clay experience. Advanced students will be encouraged to explore beyond the parameters of the class with support as required.
All levels welcome

She studied Education at Simon Fraser University and taught in West Vancouver for ten years with a focus on art as a basis for an integrated curriculum. After her teaching career and subsequent self-directed studies with various mediums including ceramics and paper arts, she was led to polymer clay, which has proven to be the perfect foundation medium for her mixed media approach.
Gera has been a full-time artisan since 1997 and her work is in collections in Canada, USA, Europe, Australia and Japan. She has been involved in juried shows including Sooke Fine Arts, Sidney Fine Arts and The International Polymer Clay Association’s Progress and Possibilities exhibition in Baltimore as well as juried shows presented by the Island Artisans Association.
