Organizers: Ildikó Tank Szigeti, Annamária Vrzáčková

The 3-day event with polymer clay will take place in Oradea, Romania in Sky Hotel between October 2-4, 2020. There will be 3 workshops.

The instructors are: Annamária Vrzáčková, Eva Hašková, Pavla Čepelíková

Registration starts on 10th of June, 2020


Annamária Vrzáčková - Galaxy

Are you looking for new ideas for using alcohol ink on polymer clay, or do you want a metal effect on polymer clay?

If your answer is yes, you must attend the “Galaxy” course, where we will use several tools and materials (ink, powders and textures) to create unique polymer clay necklace and to obtain the faux metal finish. Also I will show you how to create your own texture sheets and how to obtain clear imprints from various textures.

This course will include all polymer clay techniques to show how to put the final parts together and create a distinctive necklace and simple but vibrant earring design.

Just like many of my courses, this course will teach you a number of techniques rather than a particular project. I will provide you with well-tested tips and tricks to be used in endless projects of your own.

Eva Hašková - Nature Microworld

We will explore several different techniques at this workshop, all connected by the nature organic look. We will prepare various decorative components and surfaces which are inspirative and usable separately, but we will join them into one impressive pendant. The most distinct from these techniques is shaping the tubes, which can be also used for making the necklase just out of them. It all looks perfect in nature colours as well as in shining contrast colours and playing the game of assembling components together into pendant or pin will entertain you for a long time. Texturing and making different types of structured spirals are other techniques that we will explore at this workshop. We will play with colours and translucent clay to achieve subtle look of tubes. Our goal will be to make a pendant, but all techniques are usable separately and not only for pendants, but pins and earrings, too. Making the tube necklace is not at workshop program, but you will get all the info needed to make it later.

Pavla Čepelíková - Secret of the nature

The workshop is mainly about water colour effect and patterns creation. The technique I developed is very effective and versatile and I will share all my tips and tricks how to get best results.  „Secret of the nature”  is a combination of simple colourful  organic patterns which make a complex design in combination with black and white. All of this is „summarized“ into project of pendant, but after workshop you can create anything you like, or you can combine this technique with your other favourite techniques. This project is designed to learn a lot in one day and provides students lots of possibilities for personal approach. Each pendant will be beautiful and different.

Annamária Vrzáčková

Annamaria lives in Prague, I live in Oradea. Annamaria is an economist, I'm an engineer. Apparently there is nothing common between us and still! We like to work with polymer clay, create unique jewelry, test new techniques, participate in courses and share the fascinating world of polymer clay in workshops organized by us. And we have one more thing in common, a dream to organize this polymer clay festival for the first time in the country and we believe in the success of this event. You can see Annamaria's works and tutorials on her Facebook page, Bijoux-Annamaria, and you can find out about my monthly courses on my Facebook page, Fildycreation.
