Previously full - now one new opening!


Have fun developing your personal color palette and style while learning Carols unique approach to kaleidoscope design and pendant  construction.  Topics will include:

  • Selecting a color palette you love for your master cane

  • Color mixing to achieve color harmony and strong value contrast within your selected palette

  • Ways to modify/control your clay for better caning results

  • Applying a painterly approach to component cane design (using new and old Skinner Blend techniques)

  • Component cane types, ranging from simple to detailed, and how to construct them (level of difficulty and types of canes will depend upon interest and experience of participants)

  • Strategies for complex cane design (how to use different cane types to create rhythm, balance, emphasis, contrast and flow in the master cane)

  • Constructing and reducing the master cane.

  • Slicing the cane with the “Simmons Slicer”

  • Information on how to store/transport/handle the slices.

  • Making and using angle templates

  • Combining sections of slices to produce a wide variety of beautiful, unique but coordinated  designs
