Color Class with Maggie Maggio - May 10th and 11th, 2019

April is a busy month, so the color class with Maggie (our April speaker) is set for May 10th or May 11th. She will be presenting us with a new way to look at color and play with polymer clay as well.  Maggie has a way of making color theory both fun and understandable.  New and seasoned beaders will benefit from this class!  It will be the same class on each day, so pick the day that suits you best.  Maggie has also given PBS members a generous discount from her regular class fee, and we will be meeting in her studio on Mount Tabor.  Only 12 seats available each day, so don’t wait too long to sign up!  Follow the link for a more detailed description and to sign up or go directly to the website  Hope to see you there!

Fishtail Pendant:
Designing with Reversible Beads
Polymer Workshop

Project: Fishtail Pendant.
Level: Basic polymer clay experience required.

Travel the world of color while making a collection of simple flat beads and color coordinated, reversible pendants using Maggie’s Smashing Color Mixing Map and signature ColorWash technique.

This one-day workshop  introduces you to the world of KOLORMONDO -the Swedish color globe that makes understanding color easy and fun.

A good part of the day will be spent auditioning your colors by making sampler beads and testing variations in the technique to find just the right undertones and color combinations for you.

We will refer to your test beads to refine the colors of your personal palette before choosing a Color Scheme to use for your collection of  flat beads.

The real fun begins when you cut out the pieces, flip them over, and mix and match them for a full collection of solid color beads!

Once they are all cured, you can select your favorite pieces to finish and string into a beautiful Fishtail Pendant. Take the rest of your beads home to finish and use to create color washed jewelry such as a simple single bead pendant or complex Circles and Leaves Necklace.
