MIXED MEDIAWORKSHOP PROGRAMME
FOR GAYSEY MAISEY
March 8 – May 31
March 8 – Polymer Clay jewellery, including ideas for earrings, pendants, bracelets and pins. We will be enhancing the pieces with mica-powders, rubbing wax, wire and beads.
March15 – Using inks, stamps and embossing powders, we will be making a miniature oriental screen which can be used as a decoration or a special greetings card.
March 22 – Easter Eggs which are guaranteed not put an inch on your hips ! But will look stunning hanging from some dry twigs as a special Easter decoration for your home. The polystyrene shapes can be covered in a variety of ways. Completely covered with a mix of sequins and beads, they become a jewel encrusted ‘Faberge’ egg. Painted in pastel colours and using gingham ribbons they have a resonance of past times. We will be hoping to make 3 eggs.
March 29 – Make a bracelet from a sheet of Shrink Plastic, Decorator’s Chalks and stamped images. Never fails to amaze as you watch your piece of work shrink before your eyes !
April 5 – NO WORKSHOP
April 12 – Once again we will be using polymer clay, this time to adorn our homes not our-self! We will design a small mosaic, using clay tiles impressed with images and sentiments, attached to mount-board this can be displayed as a free standing decoration, used to embellish a book cover or hung on the wall.
April 19 – Everybody has some un-wanted, unused C.D’s! With the help of embossing powder, wire, beads and stamps you can turn them into jewellery and card toppers that stand out from the crowd.
April 26 – NO WORKSHOP
May 3 – A Star Book is a gift, a card and a piece of home decor! Made entirely out of card and decorated with inks, stamps and embellishments your friends and family will love to receive them!
May10 – The missing piece! How many of your children or grandchildren throw away jigsaw puzzles because a piece has gone missing! Grab them before they hit the dustbin! We can turn them into fantastic embellishments for cards and book covers and they make eye-catching pins that will be unique!
May 17 - I love books! I love to read them, I love to feel them – particularly old ones, I love to alter them and I love to make them. To help you understand my obsession, I’m going to start you off by making a dowel spined notebook, that is easy enough for a child to make and sophisticated enough for an adult to admire.
May 24 - Steampunk is a look you will come across quite a lot in the world of Mixed Media. It is a sort of mad scientist look- all clockwork gears and brassy bits. So I thought, we could ease you into it by making some designer look jewellery from steel washers. By using alcohol inks or embossing powders to colour them no-one will believe they came from the local D.I.Y store.
May 31 – An Exploding Box card. No it doesn’t actually explode with a bang. But it will certainly make the receiver exclaim over its beauty when they take off the lid!
