PMC Workshop Highlights

The PMC workshop finished up on March 9th, 2009, it was a great learning experience and lots of fun. I have posted two pictures here in my blog and you can see a few more of the class,Shannon and some of the other students in my PMC Album.

The picture to the right shows the projects we worked on: a hollow bead that we added texture to on one side and carved on the other, a triangular box with a cover (made a big booboo on mine but it's still very pretty), a pendant with set moonstone, carved pendant, a ring, basket weaved earrings and our final project was up to us. I decided to do an 8 point star with double curve design in the corners. It’s amazing what you can do with this clay…..I’m so “hooked.”

I’d like to say thank you again to Pete for making it happen (coz if anyone can make it happen it’s Pete lol) and also to Shannon Kennedy of Cynosure Jewelry for coming to Newfoundland in the dead of winter to help us learn about PMC. Shannon is an amazing instructor and had so much to offer each of us. She is very talented… just blew me away. I truly enjoyed the workshop and hope to add this new medium to my beadwork.

My fellow PMC classmates were: Tom Barrett of Barrett Designs, Jason Holley of Twisted Metal, Lisa Guy, Susan Stephen, Andrea Sharpe, and Tracy Keats (these folks are overflowing with artistic talent..........just amazing). Pete Barrett - Craft Industry Development Consultant and Robert Lodge (Manager for the Gordon Pinsent Centre for the Arts) also sat in on the class and worked with the clay. I sincerely enjoyed meeting each of you; it was a wonderful experience and lots of laughs (at least at my table with Pete and Robert).

Hope you like the pics!!!
