A New Technique!

We welcomed Jan Geisen to the CraftArtEdu community last summer when she introduced her first free class. Now we're very pleased to bring you a new class from Jan! 

Jan describes herself as a technique-driven artist, and in her new class, she shares one of her favorite techniques with us. In fact, the necklace at right was one she made when she first developed it!

Jan's class is for all levels, and it's guaranteed to generate lots of ideas for you to explore!

3-in-1 Cane Technique with Jan Geisen

In this class, you will learn how to achieve three different types of effects through a single technique process! These effects can be used in a variety of interesting and creative ways especially in your polymer clay jewelry making.

Jan will show you how to:
  • Create gold nuggets that can be used to add dimension and embellishment to your pieces.
  • Use those same nuggets to make the Cellular Structure cane.
  • Transform the Cellular Structure cane into a Random Pattern cane.
Jan uses a brooch to highlight these three effects, and while she explains how she makes the brooch, she does not provide step-by-step photos. She also gives you ideas for multiple variations. Jan's pendant above, for example, was made by using remnants from each of these canes. As you can see, it's easy to take this technique and make it your own!

I consider myself an improv artist... I let the clay tell me what to do.
