First Time Enameling
September 29, 2019 – October 5, 2019
This workshop is an introduction to enameling, the process of fusing glass to metal. Students will discover that with enameling, there’s no need for setting stones, spray paints, or chemical patinas if they wish to cover the surface in sparkling, vibrant color. The class includes demonstrations on basic sifting and firing techniques, liquid enameling, watercolor enamels, sgraffito, graphite overlay and simple foil applications. Participants will leave with the skills and confidence to continue pursuing this craft in the future. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
