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 1 fine silver pendant (or small earrings), learn how to prep after firing for the best enameling results, and then use cloisonne and champleve enameling techniques to add amazing depth and color. Experience with metal clays and/or enameling is not required for this class.
We'll cover all the basics and you'll leave class with lots of inspiration and information to keep the creativity going! 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 should be able to leave class with a finished piece unless you opt to create something more complex. Kiln and torch firing enamels will be covered (the metal clay will be kiln fired for max sinter).
Class fee includes fine silver metal clay, enamel, fine silver cloisonne wire, application tools, and finishing supplies, including a rotary finishing wheels.
