Julia will be teaching this workshop at the AMCAW Sinter Conference in the USA in May 2022. If you can’t make it to the USA, you can take the class in Cornwall instead – result!
This workshop gives students lots of scope to create a fun quirky pendant based on a tube form with a twist. Literally a twist! This pendant is constructed using a continuous spiral of textured clay allowing the pendant form to be as long and thick as you like – or as you can manage! Snake forms will be added allowing you to create an interesting feature. The ends are left open offering a wide range of options for completion so you can make something truly unique.
The pendant will include fire-in-place stones, embellishments to match your theme, multiple tendrils, anything you want to add to make your pendant a statement piece. Julia will demonstrate some of her own fire-in-place stone setting methods which are anything but conventional. And she’ll also share her secrets for disguising joins, ends and other small imperfections, turning them into fabulous features.
