Polymer Clay: Layers and Levels

This demo focused virtual class focuses on building layers in your work to provide a tactile quality with a depth of interest. But it is not just simple layering. We will discuss overhangs, undercuts, risers, and explore floating elements. However, to be successful with these ideas, we need to determine the steps in the process of putting it together, how layers are attached and in what order.

The instructor will encourage students to develop your own collection of veneers and components in colors, textures, and shapes that resonate with their own design aesthetic. The class will discuss sketching ideas and “auditioning” components as we develop a layered design. Different ways of attaching your layers will be covered and simple wire embellishments will be covered!

Prior experience with polymer clay is helpful but not required.

Lynn Yuhr’s art is inspired by 2 things: a love of nature and the vivid colors that surround her living in Miami. She uses them as a focal point in her contemporary jewelry, art journals and mixed media endeavors. 



She loves being creative and is passionate about polymer clay. Exploring possibilities and overcoming obstacles in the construction of a project are her favorite parts of the creative process. Her diverse experiences directly influence her artistic life where she developed a playful yet distinctive style and a strong curiosity that propels her to follow the ‘what ifs’ and try new things.





She holds a firm belief that the act of creating something softens one’s heart and opens one’s mind.  With this philosophy, she readily shares her creative techniques and teaches both locally and nationally. Lynn shares her inspiration, polymer experience, travel and other artistics on her studio blog, Flying Squirrel Studio, as well as Instagram (@lynnyuhr).
