The Griffith Regional Art Gallery is hosting a series of two polymer clay workshops with Nadine Sharpe on Saturday 1st and Sunday 2nd September, 10am - 4pm (both days)
In this comprehensive workshop students will learn to sculpt a simple piece of jewellery from scratch in order to create their own bangle, pendant or earrings.
Students will then create a mould of their sculpted piece. This mould will be able to be used again and again to create further pieces at home.
While the mould is curing, students learn the art of resin casting, using slow curing resin and Own Sweet Time’s silicone moulds to cast a bangle and a ring. A second casting will then be done in the newly created mould, learning more creative casting techniques.
Using slow curing resin allows students to discover more creative casting techniques, including embedding objects and using fillers, as well as learning how to manipulate the resin for interesting results. We will cover hand-sanding techniques, so the pieces will be finished to highest standards.
$250 per person / All materials supplied / Maximum of 10 people
