Polymer Clay Canes for Beginners

27 videos, step by step, beginner cane workshop beginner Cane Tutorial What people are saying about this tutorial. jennifer rose Just finished this first workshop on how to make canes, and I must say I learned so much. This is exactly what I have been looking for, someone who could explain cane making in a step by step that process that I could replicate. I watched the videos, went into my studio and began to create all of the canes Alice showed. I finally have results I can be proud of, and I say thank you so much for doing this workshop. My only question now is when do we get more workshops. If you are only going to take one online class let it be this workshop. Thank you Alice for your hard work, and your dedication to helping others learn the joys of polymer clay.

Artist Janet F. King and Her Thursday Girls

Yesterday, my friend Sunny Fuller and I went to see Alice In Wonderland. We had a great time . We haven’t seen each other all season and she is getting ready to head back north for the summer, so I wanted to see her before she left. We were the only two people in the entire theater, seriously, just Sunny and I. Only in a small town could two friends watch a movie on the big screen and be able to talk to each other through the whole thing as if we were in our own home. And, we enjoyed the movie and each other, so it was a successful afternoon. A big wave and a shout out to Sunny, a fun afternoon!

Later, I went to a reception at my friend Janet King’s studio for her students, the Thursday Girls.  These ladies have been going to Janet studio on Thursdays mornings for as long as I can remember. A fun, interesting, talented group of women who each year, at the end of the season, hang their artwork in Janet’s studio for a reception in their honor.

As usual the artwork from all the students was exceptional and appreciated by everyone that attended.

Alice Hansen was also there with her beautiful work that is always on display and for sale in the Janet King Studio. And the night wouldn’t be the same without Janet’s mother Mary Foley and her yummy famous chocolate toffee, thingies. I bet I ate 6 or more.

Janet is an incredible artist and a fabulous instructor. She’s lively and funny and it’s just plain fun to be in her class. But what you can learn from her is the prize. She teaches in her studio in Sebring, FL as well as traveling as far away as Italy. She’s such a good friend and I wanted to brag about her and her shop.

In her shop you’ll find original artwork, giclee prints, prints, note cards and much more. Well worth a trip to the main street in downtown Sebring, Ridgewood Dr.

If you know me, you know I love figurative art and Janet is a master at painting the figure, but that’s only the beginning. Below are just two examples of what’s on her easel……

To see more of her work, visit her website Janet King Watercolors.
