Staff reports

Salt dough art is a technique of modeling dough that has a very long history, beginning with the classical Roman, Greeks and Egyptians. None of the artists in the past had the use of a microwave oven.

“Now we do,” said artist Carol Foldvary-Anderson. “Learn what fun dough art can be these days!”

Anderson will instruct a 1-1/2 hour microwave dough art workshop Friday, Dec. 10, 3:30 to 5 p.m. Cost is $20, which includes all supplies. The workshop will take place at the Brewery Arts Center, 449 W. King Street in Carson City.

Foldvary-Anderson has been working with salt dough for over eight years and experimenting with a microwave oven came easy for her.

“Instant gratification is what I was after, and in about a 3-minute time span for cooking in the microwave, you can be ready to paint a piece of jewelry, an ornament or a refrigerator magnet. It’s that easy and quick,” she said.

A limited number of students will be accepted, and both children and adults may sign up. Call the Brewery Arts Center at 883-1976 to reserve a space.
