About this workshop:
Create your own contemporary statement earrings inspired by Ancient Egypt in this virtual NHMU Craft Workshop presented by Craft Lake City. In this virtual class, students will learn the art of polymer clay jewelry from local artisan Studio Ramiii, utilizing various clay-working techniques to create texture and bold shapes. A master in her craft, instructor Nicole Morris will provide students with highly specialized tips on working with polymer clay to achieve consistent, high-quality results at home.
Participants will also learn about the significance of the lotus flower in Egyptian culture, while gaining insight into the rich historical importance of jewelry in ancient times. This program is inspired by the current NHMU exhibition, Egypt: The Time of Pharaohs.
This workshop will be held virtually on Zoom. Attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the instructor in real time, gaining feedback and guidance as they create in their homes.
