This well-known and much-loved polymer clay technique is easy to do and can be adapted to create numerous beautiful results. Learn the Art of Mokume Gane: Making Patterns with Polymer Clay for Beginners Laurie Olefson, whose unique, hand-crafted eyewear is created in her tiny studio on Calgo’s campus, will be teaching this colorful and fun workshop. Laurie loves Mokume Gane for its unlimited creative possibilities including an endless variety of textures and kaleidoscope-like patterns that can be designed using it. She uses polymer clay (among other things) to finish her glasses. You will be using this technique to create TWO PAIRS of earrings. Laurie will teach you how to condition the clay and mix colors to ready it for you to design your earrings. The clay will be baked after class and Laurie will add surgical steel backs to them before you pick them up, the following week. Also available for purchase are glasses that can be custom made to match your new earrings! The workshop fee includes a tile (to roll clay on), a rolling pin, a blade, three colors of clay (one is black), and earring findings.

Learn the art of making Bonsai trees with nature's influence! During this workshop led by Peter Bethune, you will learn how to use plants, shrubs, and trees from your back yard to create beautiful bonsai trees. They last for many years and can even be passed down through generations. For a more in-depth experience, bring in a small young tree of your own. With Peter’s instruction, you will learn how to trim and wire your plant! We heavily encourage participants to bring their own plant. Adding to the experience, it makes the class that much more interesting as we watch each other's plants grow. Peter will be demonstrating how to cut, trim, and wire bonsais and even help you out with your own trees. All Calgo Garden Events follow COVID-19 Guidelines.
