Mixed-Media Fiber & Paper Clay Brooches

Saturday, October 14, 2017 from 9:30am to 3:30pm

Instructor: Kathryn Walmsley

WGGC Members: $70 + $15 materials fee / Non-members: $95 + $15 materials fee

Class Limit: 10

In this class we will learn about Creative Paperclay® and how to combine it with bits and pieces of woven fabric, felt, and threads. We'll begin by choosing a pre-pressed and dried tile, give it a bit of sanding, and move on to embellishing with gesso, paint, and pastels. Most of what you'll need will be provided but if you have small scraps of woven fabric or cotton you like, bring them to class. I use the textiles to help me decide on the colors to paint my tile.

Each student will have the opportunity to press fresh clay into molds to take home, dry, and create brooches or ornaments. Some of the molds we'll use are Springerle cookie molds, so please bring yours if you have them. Paper Clay is completely non-toxic!

The $15 materials fee includes:

  • Paper clay tile and additonal clay to make new tiles
  • Sand paper, gesso, paint, pastels, matte fixative and glue for class use
  • Small pieces of fabric and felt, perle cotton embroidery thread, pin back

Please bring to class:

  • Extra light if you'll need it, the brooches are pretty small!
  • Small sharp scissors
  • Needles big enough for perle cotton #8 and #12. Bring fancy threads from home if you like.
  • #10/zero round detail brush and 1/4" flat wash brush

Your fee will be refunded if the class is canceled or changed to a different date. Three registrations are required for a class to be held. Students will be notified before the start date if a class is canceled due to an insufficient number of students.
