LAST MINUTE UPDATE!
Due to health issues, our guest artist, Karen Lewis (Klew), is unable to attend our retreat. Syndee Holt has generously offered to step in and teach us some of her fabulous techniques instead. Class topics are listed below.
- When: Thursday through Saturday, April 6-8, 2017
- Where: Memorial Presbyterian Church, 601 24th Ave SW, Norman, OK 73069 [map and venue info]
- This year’s theme: Safari 6
- Guest artist: Syndee Holt
- Syndee’s classes:
- “A Translucent Workshop” (Friday afternoon) – Ways to work with translucent clay, including layering, using inks, making simple canes, and using silkscreens.
- “Play in Clay with Syndee” (Saturday morning) – Various techniques Syndee has devised to work with clay – she’s always coming up with fun and innovative ways to play!
Make inchies (1″x1″ squares of polymer clay art) to bring to the retreat and swap with your retreat comrades! Making inchies is not required, but it’s a great way to collect souvenirs of the retreat and make new friends. Make as few or as many as you wish to trade.

One attendee summed up her experience at our retreat this way:
“All 3 days were great, well organized, kept on time, good vendor presentation etc., etc. etc. I could go on beyond e-mail ability. In other words we had a GREAT time and will remember it all year.” — Julie H.
