Apr 9 & 10, 2016 10am-3pm “Coral Cloud” Shawl Pin and Pendant  
The "Coral Cloud" Shawl Pin/Pendant workshop. With Donna Greenberg

The Coral Cloud design is also a chameleon. It functions beautifully as a pendant or shawl pin, or both!
In this workshop, students will create a cloud-like pendant, gracefully detailed with undulating "ribbons". You will learn the simple but effective hand sculpting methods Donna uses to create the graceful folds that are the hallmark of this design.
Students will also learn how to achieve the buttery surface effect with a unique combination of layered oil paints and liquid clays. The translucent color application is inspired by Majolica ceramics and have a lovely depth. We will cover a bit of translucent color theory as we work.
Finally, students will create custom polymer clasp system as well as a stick pin for use with a shawl or scarf. Round leather cording will be supplied for hanging the pendant.
A materials fee of $10.00 per student will cover the cost of leather cording, wooden sticks, and use of oil paints and glazes that Donna will provide.
