Workshop Description

In this workshop you will explore how to develop layers of sifting, stencils, and silkscreens combined with enamel paint sgraffito techniques.

The sgraffito design will be enhanced with drawing and painting techniques using mica watercolors, enamel paints, and or drawing inks. Participants will complete a series of enamels suitable for jewelry, small wall pieces or samples to inform future work. Open to all skill levels, however basic enameling skills will be helpful.
