Polymer Pamper Play III

Polymer Pamper Play is a premier polymer event organized for the past three years by Debbie Carlton and Rebecca Thickbroom at the Cotswold Conference Center near the picturesque town of Broadway, England. I’ve heard wonderful things about PPP every year – everyone always talks about it in superlatives!

I am thrilled and honored to be teaching at the next PPP from April 12 – 14, 2013.  My workshop is titled “The Nature of Mark Making: Instinctive Doodling on Polymer Clay.” It combines the basics of the Watercolor Technique with drawing on the baked clay with a micro pen. It will be so much fun!

Angela GarrodMy fellow instructor will be polymer artist Angela Garrod of Claynine Polymer Designs.  Angela will be teaching how to make some of the gorgeous focal beads from her signature Spring is Sprung necklace. I’ve admired Angela’s work for years and look forward seeing her exquisitely designed pieces in person!

In addition to the two polymer workshops, Emma Beane will be presenting “Make it Sparkle” – a photography workshop for artists. I would love to start taking my own photos so I’m excited to learn some of Emma’s tips and tricks.

Pampering is the name of the game for this event.  Here’s what Ana Belchi had to say after teaching there last year . . .

“Imagine an event where every student has a desk of 1.50 x 0, 70 m; two huge plasma TVs and a projector, so you can follow all the workshops without losing a single detail. Imagine that there is a room dedicated exclusively to the ovens, with areas to leave the work to be baking, others to collect the cooked. Think of that if you need some materials you can go to the store (which is in another room) to buy what you need.

Imagine that every morning Debbie and Rebecca report all activities that you are going to perform throughout the day; that when you want to take a cup of coffee you just have to approach the bar and there it is. Or that you like to take a typical English tea and cakes, at five in the afternoon you can do it. Or that after dinner you want to continue working… and all this with these views every morning.”

It looks heavenly doesn’t it! Join us!
