This class is perfect for making a Mother’s Day flower marble that she will treasure forever.

Jim Boulay has learned from the best. (Bronwen Heilman, John Kobuki and Akihiro Okama.) He has developed his own style, and is ready to share it with the world!

This class will focus on the use of multi-color and twisted cane stringers to enhance the pedals and leaves in compression (Kobuki style) flower marbles. Demonstrations will illustrate the technique for making the multi-color and twisted cane stringers. This technique uses multiple layers of the stringers to create a more complex flower pedal and leaves. It creates a beautiful complex flower in the completed marble.
