Event Description

Polymer Fabrication
Instructor: Cynthia Toops
November 13 & 14
10am – 4pm

...We’re always proud to offer the newest classes from our instructors – this is a class that Cynthia created by request for The Ranch! Starting from a simple cane you will create 10 different pairs of earrings and learn some of Cynthia’s unique polymer clay techniques in the process. No previous polymer clay experience is required (but you have to love beads!!)

Course #F10MC1134 $245. (Materials fee: $20)

CYNTHIA TOOPS discovered polymer clay during a visit in the 1980’s to her native Hong Kong, and fell in love with the medium. Cynthia is inspired by 18th Century Italian micro mosaics, as well as the elaborate works of Mexico's Huichol Indians, who embed seed beads in hot wax. Adapting these styles to polymer clay, she developed techniques that work for her and are 'simple and very low-tech'. Using this technique of mosaic in her work, Cynthia is able to create tremendous richness, texture and subtle color variation on a single piece. Cynthia is widely published and exhibits and teaches throughout the United States. Beads and More was published by Cynthia and her husband, Dan Adams in 2008.

Invisible:VisAble Exhibition

Art can be a way to heal. Many artists privately face invisible medical and mental illness challenges that others are unaware of because they look, and act, absolutely normal. Some artists creatively tap into these challenges and give voice to them through a variety of mediums and styles. Invisible:VisAble, curated by artist Leisa Rich, is an art exhibition that features several artists whose art works are informed by their challenges. It is to be held in Atlanta in April, 2015 at Mason Fine…See More
