I am super excited about being a presenter, amongst a great group of teachers, at this year’s Polymer Plus event. I was a presenter last year for PAS ’22 and experienced how the team put together such a fabulous, inspiring and professionally organized event! The students came back with such interesting experiments. I have no doubt this year’s Polymer Art Summit will be as great if not better, I can’t wait!

Polymer & Textiles

In this session I will demonstrate several textile techniques to use with polymer clay. I will use textiles, like fabrics and threads or textile techniques as structure or visual enhancement for the work, like different embroidery stitches or tassels.

Laura’s presentation will be live and a recording will be available to all attendees soon after the Summit ends on August 6, 2023.

Registration for PAS is open through July 31 with a finite number of spaces available.
