Etch-It, Fold-It, Stitch-It, Enamel-It. Repeat!

August 30, 2018 – September 2, 2018

Alicia Jane Boswell

Students will begin by learning the process of salt-water etching ferrous and non-ferrous sheet metal to create exciting imagery and patterns for small-scale objects or jewelry. Participants will explore three-dimensional possibilities with their etched metal using “score and fold,” “tab and fold,” or simple “stitching” techniques before applying subtle layers of vitreous enamel. This class focuses on methods of achieving simple forms and color, although participants will leave with a clear understanding of the traditional enameling technique of Champlevé’. Open to all skill levels.
