BoHo Clay Tapestry is a class where students will be guided through the process of using polymer clay as a background material on which to embed and attach glass tesserae, jewelry pieces, beads and fiber. The goal of this workshop is to familiarize students with the medium of polymer clay and how it can be utilized to create tiles that can be combined with traditional mosaic materials to create beautiful works of art. In this hands-on workshop, students will learn how to condition clay, roll out slabs, rubber stamp, paint, gold leaf and embed the clay with tesserae. A variety of mixed media techniques for altering the substrate will also be emphasized including rubber stamping with ink and using stencils. Students will leave class with a sumptuous, Bohemian-looking art piece ready to hang on the wall.
