Enameling is the colorful result of fusing powdered glasses to metal with high heat, forming a durable vitreous coating. This class provides you with an overview of the ancient art of enameling, from metal preparation, properties of enamel, opaques and transparents, dry and wet applications, kiln firing, use of cloisonne’ wire and pure silver foil, adhesives, millefiore, glass threads, crackles, and safe studio practices. Students will create wearable and non-wearable enameled works, using copper as a base. No previous jewelry making or metalworking experience is necessary. Note: A supply fee of $125, cash or check, is due and payable to the instructor at the beginning of the first class.
