Creative Enamel Color: Cloisonné and Beyond
October 6, 2019 – October 12, 2019
In this workshop students apply creative enamel color to cloisonné and champlevé projects (including argentium and metal clay) using transparent, opaque and opalescent enamel colors. Using this enamel color vocabulary, you will blend, gradate, layer, band and bridge to create a never-ending array of color possibilities. Participants can also experiment freely by building up layers to create personal imagery and expressive design. There will be demonstrations on using both commercial and hand-made foils. The class also includes lectures, video, handouts and lots of hands-on “making” time. Many students will leave with 10-20 samples. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $675
