We are delighted to bring you a brand new workshop from Craig Mitchell Smith creating his newest sculptural floral creation. In this three-day class, Craig will teach the tips and techniques to master two of his newest Cattleya orchids.
This class is suitable for students with some fusing experience.
Day 1- Craig will share his process to cut and create these beautiful blossoms. Students will learn his texturing techniques through the making of Craig’s texture boards and unique texturing skills. You will also create custom silk screens and learn how to powder print from them.
