Cloisonné Enameling and Haiku Writing
October 13, 2019 – October 19, 2019
Cloisonné is drawing with wire and coloring with glass. It can be simple or complex. During this workshop students discover the cloisonné process using a slightly domed disk from base coat to finishing. You will work on copper with silver foil and fine silver. Participants will also use a special jig to create repetitive cloisons. 3D vessels will be available for use. For added inspiration and meditation, the class will write haiku poems. Basic metalsmithing/jewelry skills and some enameling experience are helpful, but not required. Beginners are welcome.
COURSE FEE: $675
