Event description

Description

CLASS DESCRIPTION Learn to enamel and leave with your own handmade earrings. We will explore opaque enamels with strings/frit or transparent enamels with hammered/stamped textures. We will also learn processes including dry sifting, stenciling, and basse taille.

INSTRUCTOR Lindsay Huff is an artist and metalsmith who creates wearable art and works primarily in enamel. Her artistic process stems from a fascination with her materials and environment. Lindsay graduated with a BFA in Metalsmithing from Syracuse University, where she began her first experiments with enameling. As an artist, Lindsay loves the act of transformation and the dialogue between certainty and uncertainty: how glass enamels react with each other, the anticipation of waiting for a piece to reveal itself after a firing, and the hammered metamorphosis of sheet metal to finished vessel.
