Jana Roberts Benzon has a diverse artistic background in various mediums, but polymer clay has captured her creative spirit like nothing else. Jana has focused on creating her brand of intricate “millefiori” canework and in perfecting her innovative techniques for building and reducing canes.  From those canes, Jana loves creating interesting, dimensional jewelry pieces often evocative of Arabic or old world designs.  While she’ll never leave the geometric symmetry of caning, these days she’s having a great time exploring the world of organic forms and “cutwork”.

Come join this intimate retreat for 3 wonderful days of learning from Jana while taking in the Blue Ridge Mountains in Floyd, Virginia.

Teri has a lot in store for you in these jammed packed 3 days. We will spend time learning from Jana, sharing meals and laughing together. Teri will transform the Walters’ garage into a clay working studio that sets on top of Panther Knob Mountain. There are breathtaking views, unlimited source of mountain air along with wild life all around. The welcoming committee here consists of 4 friendly dogs, Banjo, Spanky, Quee-Queg and Rusty, and 3 cats, Tripoly, Simba and Cheetah.  They are all anxious to meet and greet you every day. Most days you will also be greeted by Bob, that would be my beloved husband of 36 years. It is a fabulous environment in which to work and play. I hope you will join us!
