Christmas Tree Doodle Cane

 

The easiest cane you’ll ever make!

Sometimes it’s fun just to “play” in your studio. This past year I’ve been working on a lot of things, one of which is my caning. I have learned most of my caning and caning techniques from Meg Newberg (see the latest free tutorial she shared last week here).  However, there are a great number of caners who I admire: Ronit Golan, Marcia Tzigelnik, and Matt Kerm … of course Jon Anderson as well but WOW … he’s a master. Moving on…..

***Note: Basic conditioning & cane reduction techniques are assumed for this mini-tutorial.***

  1. Hi Katie. Again many thanks for all your helpful tips, advise plus all your other tutorials. I would like to take the opportunity to wish both yourself and your obviously much adored husband, all the best for the Christmas. Naturally included is your rather spoiled dog. May your Christmas be shared with your family and friends, and the New Year bring you good fortune, happiness and love.

    1. Thank you so much Lorraine. I appreciate your thoughts & sentiment very much! May your Christmas and New Year be blessed as well. Giant clay hugs to you! ~Katie

  2. What is the best way to reduce a square cane?

    1. There are a lot of different techniques out there and it depends a lot on the size of the cane. However, I use acrylic blocks to start, then I begin to stretch it with my hands, in addition as it gets longer I use my acrylic rod to help keep it square.
