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.

A Trade with Nikolina Otrzan

Once again I’m thrilled that a talented artist decided to try the Stroppel Cane and then to top it off was willing to trade with me.

I love this piece that Nikolina created just for me using a Stroppel cane and her signature crossword puzzle accents to spell “alice”. I can’t wait to for it to get here, it’s coming all the way from Croatia.

As I said before, it’s a wonderful experience with the added bonus of being able to see fantastic work up close and learn from one another. Thanks Nik!

You can see more fabulous work for Nikolina on her famous flickr site Orson’s World.

Here’s my part of the trade.

    I’m so glad Mayda, and so happy you are a survivor! There are so many places on the web that are helpful, but the way to get your questions answered the quickest is through the Yahoo groups.
    Just to name a couple. You learn so much and people post links to all kinds of things. Don’t be shy, ask questions, you will always get answers.
