Sculptural Books, Tryptychs, and Standing Screens

In this workshop we will explore the three-dimensional world of sculptural books, triptychs and standing screens.  Using polymer clay, papers, fabric, and personal treasures, we’ll create and layer images and text to tell a story, evoke a mood, or simply create something beautiful. Polymer clay techniques will include transfers, layering and collaging with translucent clays, several surface techniques and the successful integration of mixed media with polymer clay.  We will bind the sculptural books with a text block of unusual papers. Triptychs and screens will be hinged and can be used as luminescent candle screens, wall pieces or standing sculptures. Leave the workshop with fresh ideas and techniques to incorporate into your personal style.
