Join master polymer clay artist, Wendy Moore, LIVE ONLINE, July 6th, 7 PM ET, and learn how to create these stunning faux-stone polymer vessels.

In this creative exploration class, Wendy will demonstrate how to make small wearable vessels from polymer clay that will also look gorgeous displayed on your wall!

“If you love wandering in the garden or bush, like me, you might also find yourself with pockets full of leaves, feathers, interesting sticks, knobbly pods, or curls of bark. People might even look a tiny bit askance at your piles of collected ephemera. Great a vessel to display your treasures. (Let’s call them curations!).” ~Wendy Moore

Wendy will look at the wide variety of colours occurring in rocks and stones and demonstrate ways to recreate these colours and textures using translucent clay and various pigments and additives such as spices.

Watch close-up and learn how Wendy creates a hollow form using a rock as her inspiration and form.

Learn some basic elements of design and construction plus have lots of creative fun making these one-of-a-kind vessels.

This class is great for beginners or polymer artists who want some fresh inspiration to add to their skillset.

Join us and learn how to collaborate with nature to create small celebrations of nature’s diversity and wonder. 

AND Wendy will be taking live questions from participants.
