Join Me For A Class

I have a couple of face cane classes coming up that I thought I'd tell you about.  The first will be held at Creative Journey Studios outside of Atlanta on Aug 11 and 12.  The next will be In Kansas City on October 6 and 7.  I will be teaching how I make a face cane.  This two day class is jammed packed (how else can you get a face cane made in two days)  But it is also packed with fun.  Above you will see some of the canes made by my students in earlier classes.  It covers how I take a picture and create a cane based on that picture.  Tricks and rules of caning are covered.  How to reduce this giant cane and still have it looking like a face.  I show my process and I hope my students step away no longer intimidated by complex canes.  They learn that "they are the masters for their clay and it WILL bend to their will."

If you are interested in the Creative Journey class watch for information on it here
For more information on the upcoming class in Kansas City email me at the link above and I will connect you with the person in charge.

If you or your guild would like me to come teach a class at your location please email me.  I'd love to hear from you.

Here are some pictures of the cane we will be creating and some various things you can do with it.
