About the Event
Learn the ancient mystery of bonding metal and glass into a harmonious, colorful work of art. During this workshop, we will create fine silver pieces from metal clay, learn how to prep them after firing for the best enameling results, and then use cloisonne, champleve, and plique-a-jour enameling techniques to add amazing depth and color.
Experience with metal clays and/or enameling is not required for this class. This class is for anyone wanting to learn to create their own precious metal elements, add color to their work or explore enameling basics. You will leave class with finished pieces. Kiln and torch-firing enamels will be covered (the metal clay will be kiln fired for max sinter).
