Hand Built: Polymer Clay with Elisabeth Arzt, AIR

$95, $75 mbrs. (discounted price will display for members upon login)

In this workshop students learn basic hand building techniques and color composition with polymer clay. Each student will also have the option of incorporating found objects, such as seashells, coins, rocks, etc, into an incredible piece of wearable art. Polymer clay bakes at a low temperature, therefore, small objects that can withstand the baking temperature can be integrated into a unique and marvelous piece! Class begins with an introduction to the possibilities inherent to polymer clay, including mixing colors, adding different textures, using hand tools and stamps, and even enforcing their structure with armature wire.

Elisabeth Arzt was born and raised on a farm in Maryland. Since she was a kid she found nature to be the ultimate sage, the pastures were her sandbox, the critters her neighborhood rapscallions, and the forest her chapel. Elisabeth pursued art as a career and earned her BFA in Sculpture from the Corcoran College of Art in Washington, D.C. An avid tree hugger, Elisabeth’s work, both illustration, carving, and jewelry are an exploration of how trees are an integral part of our culture.
