This is a one-session class running Saturday 1/7/17 10:15 AM - 4:15 PM
In a combination of two enthralling materials, learn to join glass to metal in this single session workshop! Vitreous enamel is a type of glass that will fuse to metal. We will explore these enameling techniques: sifting, wetpacking, sgraffito, stencils, and embedding other elements using a small kiln for firing the pieces. Expect to create several enameled pieces!
Students will gain familiarity and comfort with basic enameling skills, kiln firing. and complete multiple pieces of enameled jewelry or miniature art.
No experience necessary. Beginners welcome! Students must be at least 18 years old.
All safety equipment, materials, and tools are included in the price of your ticket.
What to Bring:
An apron and a notebook. Some initial ideas of what design you'd like to work into your jewelry piece!
