Program: Exploring Extruder Techniques
Join us for a fun clay day exploring extruder techniques. The first demo will cover an overview of extruders, followed by a variety of extruded string techniques. The second demo will show how to use the core adapters to make bead bases, necklace and bracelet “cords” from polymer clay, and other interesting patterns. The final demo will show layering of clay discs in the extruder to achieve a variety of patterned canes. The “retro” cane is one of the most popular uses for an extruder.
