Experience Level: None necessary
Dates offered: TBA
An intensive week-long class appropriate for beginners. We’ll start with a bit of history, safety procedures, tools, equipment and metal and enamel preparation, then we’ll dive right into work! Over the course of five days you will learn and explore a variety of techniques – dry and wet application techniques, using stencils, acrylic painting enamels, foils, learning sgraffito, using inclusions such as beads and stringers, layering, surface treatments, finishing pieces, and simple settings. We’ll cover enameling 3-dimensional forms and how to texture and treat metal for fun effects. There will be a lot of time to explore, to experiment, ask questions, and complete several pieces. A small class size will give you ample opportunity to learn more about what interests you. Be prepared to learn just as much from your fellow students! We’ll have time to share our work with one another and get feedback from the group. It will be a fun, inviting, and inspiring atmosphere. Over 30 hours of workshop time.
