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.

Polymer Face Cane Workshop with OAPCG

OAPCG Profile Face Cane Class 2010

OAPCG Profile Face Cane Class 2010

Yesterday I taught my profile face cane to some of the women of the Orlando Area Polymer Clay Group. What a great group of clayers and a fun group to teach. Sandy and Nita hosted the class in the meeting room where they live, it was perfect. Thank you so much.

Thanks to Crazy Nancy Welch for inviting me to teach. ( You better watch out though CN because your fabulous dream machine pasta machine might just turn up missing one day, *G* geez now I gotta work hard to afford one just like you)

The group each brought a dish for a pot luck and let me tell you it was better than we could have bought anywhere. Thanks ladies, I loved everything and ate way too much.

Look at these girls, even bald they have character. ¬†Each clayer finished a face and watched how to apply them to a bracelet or pin or even to a container. Charlene brought a vase along with her and before the end of the class had already applied a face with hair and flower. Mary had hair on her girl and Nancy’s girl ( the one with attitude) was placed on clay ready for hair.¬†Linda used her extruder and leftover clay to give her sassy girl a wavy do.

I hope they all send me pictures of what they make. Hair makes a big difference with these characters.

Thanks again all you OAPCG women, I loved it.

    Alice, we’re the ones who must thank you. I plan to try my hand caning a few more “lovely ladies” but before I do I ordered a motor for my pasta machine!! The class was great; very thorough and well organized. And you are right – our ladies in the Orlando guild are the best and so are you!

  • Alice

    Valerie, we did have a great time. I love all the halloween goodies you make.

  • Alice

    Yea…another motor convert. Kem, you will never regret it. In fact you’lll wonder how you ever managed without it. Thanks for the nice compliment and I can’t wait to see you first finished girlfriend.

  • Nita

    Alice, I had a WONDERFUL time in your face cane class. You are an excellent instructor making the class fun and playful. Can’t wait to “dress” my faces! Really appreciated the very long drive you made to our “neck of the woods.”

  • Alice

    Nita, thank you so much for the positive feed back. It was a pleasure and the drive was worth it. We did have fun didn’t we? Can’t wait to see your girls..send pictures. Thanks again to you and Sandy for the meeting room.

  • Sherry

    Thank you Alice. I had such a great time and learned so much. When I got home I applied my face to the pin back you gave us..added hair, earring, pretty dress and a pretty hat and I love my pin even though it looks like a dude in drag I don’t care because he/she’s mine. You are an amazing, patient teacher. Can’t wait to make more faces.

  • Alice

    Oh Sherry you make me laugh, I know exactly what you mean about the he/she thing. I feel the same about my faces. I was so happy to meet you and you’re enthusiasm for pc is contagious, reminds me of me even now. Please send pictures……I love pictures. And thank you for taking the time to leave such a nice note.

  • Sherry

    Thank you, if I had the same vision and talent as you do then it would match my desire, so I thank God for women like you who have it all and are willing to teach us that don’t. I sent you an e-mail with a picture of my face pin. It’s sorta fuzzy because I took it with my cell camera. I’m calling my pin Ed because she reminds me of my previous boss Ed in Indiana. I think I might be in trouble if I start naming my creations.

  • Alice

    Wow, thanks Sherry, making me blush. I loved your “Ed” pin and can’t wait for a clearer picture. Yours is the first picture from the class, thanks for sending it.
