Do you want to enamel dimensional objects? Are you not sure how to solder it first? In this workshop students will explore creating dimensional pieces, soldering, and enameling the piece using a torch, and problem-solving to enable the piece to be set. You will discover that there are many pieces that can be enameled, after soldering, if a torch is used rather than a kiln. During class, equal weight will be given to planning, forming/creating the piece in metal, and then enameling. Soldering and enameling skills will allow for more flexibility in design, and are highly recommended, but not necessary. The class will share demonstrations with Deb Karash’s Metals workshop. Open to all skill levels.
