Our Queen City Clayers June meeting was held on the 26th at the Blythe location. Kathy brought her lathe and taught us how to turn polymer clay (literally) like you turn wood spindles. TOO COOL. I was intimidated by the fast spinning contraption at first. Kathy is such a good, calm teacher we got through it. Soon clay was flying and the graceful shapes of turned pens were emerging. After baking we put them back on the lathe for the fastest sanding you have ever seen. We left with finished pens and key chains we are proud of. Thank you Kathy for bravely sharing your tools and talent. A very exciting and different demo. I think I have a new piece of equipment to want.
For those that missed it Kathy might be talked into demoing again some time if we ask real nice.
Many thanks go Cheryl's hubby for carrying the very heavy lathe in and out too.
Our next meeting will be on July 24th at Expressive Impressions.
More details later.
