Mixed Media Ceramics: Clay + Beading

In this course, you will discover the process of planning and creating mixed media artworks incorporating ceramics and beading. Over the course of eight weeks, we will start by brainstorming project concepts, followed by crafting the ceramic components in the first four weeks. Subsequently, over the next four weeks, we will delve into various beading techniques to create the intricate beaded elements of the piece. Finally, we will culminate the project by assembling the ceramic and beaded components to achieve the finished artwork.
