Monthly Meetings

Programs vary from month to month so we get the chance to learn something new or explore a unique way to play with polymer clay. Each meeting also has a Show & Tell portion so be sure to bring one of your works with you. We love to share what we’re working on with other clayers!

When: Every first Wednesday of the month
Time: 6:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m.
Where:  Artworks, 201-2nd Avenue, Edmonds, WA 98020

February 5th- Round Robin
Kim Day will lead the group in making the paradox cane, as taught in a picture only tutorial by Vivid Clay on Facebook. It looks great by itself, but it is also magical when you tessellate it! If you are a slow worker, you can come prepared with a skinner blend sheet of half a block each of two colors (white and black is pretty stunning). If we finish the canes early, we can also make things with them, so bring background or scrap clay as well.

Materials to Bring:
*Work Surface
*Half a block of two colors that blend well together. White as one color is a good choice.
*A quarter block of a color for the stripes– can be same as your dark skinner blend color, or different.
*Clay Blade
*Pasta Machine
*Optional: Deli paper, acrylic roller, scrap clay, background clay, burnisher (not used in cane making, but for making things with the cane after).
