A series of three polymer clay workshops led by Arlene Groch and Susan Gross, exhibiting artists in the Into the Forest exhibition.

For three afternoons this winter you will have a chance to learn how to use polymer clay to create and bring home your own jewelry or household items. Classes will be held at the Arts Garage at the base of the Expressway in Atlantic City. We will meet on Thursdays, November 7th and 21st and December 5th, from 11:30 am to 3:30 pm, so bring a brown bag lunch or other snacks. The first class is free. Subsequent classes are $10 per person + $10 for materials.

Your teachers, Arlene Groch and Susan Gross, have a total of 30 years experience creating beautiful works of art with this versatile, strong but light weight, colorful modeling clay that bakes [cures] in a home toaster oven. They will teach you all about how to prepare the clay, mix the colors to what suits your fancy, mold it into sheets, make it into canes, roll it into “snakes”, add paints, glitter, foil, and other fun stuff like spices and powders, form it into what you want it to become, safely bake it to harden and preserve it, and then take your creations home with you.

So what is polymer clay? It is an oven baked man-made modeling material created from a plastic, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) base and colors, not from natural clay. It is used by artists and hobbyists around the world, ranging from children to professional artists and even movie makers. When you come for your class you’ll be able to see hundreds of wonderful flowers, leaves, grasses, insects and more, all made from polymer clay, as you visit the Into the Forest exhibition which is on view at the Arts Garage from now until early January 2, 2020.
