Kish Center for Ceramics and Pottery


In this 6 week class you will learn all the basic skills necessary to make a Kaleidoscope Cane from polymer clay. A Polymer Clay cane is a technique where a complex pattern of shapes and colors is created within the clay itself. They are logs of different colored clay with a pattern that runs through it. I will take you step by step through what you need to know to create professional Kaleidoscope Canes. Once you learn the process of building a cane, you’ll apply your canes to several fun projects. This class is suitable for beginners, no prior experience is necessary. If you ever felt unsure or nervous about creating such complex canes from clay, you’ll be amazed at the results you can achieve.
There will be no class held April 6th
