Well I thought I should post about my recent class I held for teaching how to make a name/ initial cane so that you cane “sign” your work. We had a great time in our class. Lots of laughing. I think that the 3 gals that had done the most clay before were a bit more cautious with their building. Where the three who were new to the clay threw caution to the wind, and went for it. From the end products I have seen everyone did well with their final product. Caning is a learned technique. The more you do the better you get at it. So do not expect perfection the first-or second time out. But go with it. Each cane seems to take on a life of its own. If it really doesn’t turn out like you would like there are ohh so many things you can do with it. One of my strongest suggestions is take the time to pack the cane methodically if you want it to turn out as you envision. You will save yourself a lot of disappointment later. If you have questions about caning feel free to ask. We will try and answer some questions.
