Drawing And Painting With Cloisonné Enamel
October 27, 2019 – November 2, 2019
In this workshop students learn the multi-step process of cloisonné enameling. Each participant will create fine silver and copper pieces while practicing the art of color blending techniques with enamel. Your pieces will be worked as small-scale drawings or paintings with an emphasis on line variation and painterly techniques with the enamel. The course also covers how to make your own cloisonné wire, silver and gold foil application, layering foils in-between color application, and surface treatment techniques. Open to all skill levels, however those with previous cloisonné instruction will also benefit.
COURSE FEE: $675
