If you saw my presentation at Synergy II last February, you may recognize this as the opening slide. In that presentation I showed how the designs on the slide, and many more, could be constructed from a single cane. I’m thrilled to announce I’ll be teaching my method in a 6-day intensive at Maureen Carlson’s Center for Creative Arts in Prior Lake, MN, next October. The workshop will include everything I covered in the talk, from developing a personal color palette to constructing complex canes to manipulating cane slices into a one-of-a-kind kaleidoscope designs and finishing them as two-sided pendants.
Maureen’s Center is the perfect venue for this workshop. There is lodging for the participants right in the Center and the workroom will be open around the clock. There will be a maximum of 7 students (one has registered already). This is how I’d always teach if I could. More information is posted on Maureen’s website.
If the triangular cane looks familiar, it is probably because you saw the post about reducing this cane on Polymer Clay Daily a couple of years ago. Sometime soon I’ll be posting pictures of some of the other pendants from that cane.
