New Start Date for Polymer Class at Lafayette

New Start Date for Polymer Class at Lafayette

August 24, 2016 Meetings 0

The polymer clay class at LaFayette Arts and Crafts Center is starting up again Thursday September 1st. It runs from 6:30 to 9:00 for eight weeks and it runs you $48, which is six bucks a night or, if I got it right, $2.40 an hour. Ellen Rumsey Bellenot is, once again, at what serves as the helm.

What we do is to some extent dependent on who’s in the class and their interests, but I’m thinking about doing surface techniques such as mono printing with acrylic paints and using mica powders with stencils (easy and great bang for your buck) and making them into pins and domed pendents with Jan Montarsi’s pendant bails. That still leaves some openings for lobbying by students.

The first night we’re going to do beads for an elasticized bracelet with translucent clay and embossing powders as inclusions. That way, if there are newbies I’ll be able to talk about general stuff to them while they work and they can get a feel for the glorious stuff. And I’d like another one, myself.

This is pretty short notice but if you know anyone who’d be interested they can sign up on line (at least you’re supposed to be able to) at


No Meeting in September* Unless….


someone would like to host a gathering at their home.

What’s needed is some tables and chairs, and a countertop to hold whatever foodstuffs and beverages make their way into the building. Tables should be stable and you should be OK with folks clamping their pasta machines to the table.

Date and time up to the host(ess).

If interested, contact Barb and she’ll get the word out.

*We’re hard-hit by the holidays this year, and won’t be meeting due to the Labor Day Weekend.
