Enamelling is a great way to expand ones sense of aesthetic in the arts. In this introductory course, opaque and transparent enamels are used to instruct the four groups of glass enamelling techniques: dry application, wet charging, painting, and cloisonné. In the cloisonné portion of the course, students are introduced to the techniques of cleaning enamels, wire preparation, and finishes. Decorative applications of foils, glass rods, and millefiori are shown so they can be incorporated into your artwork. As a student in this class, you can look forward to taking at least two pieces of finished enamel work home with you.
With small class sizes (max 6 students) you will have the opportunity for in-depth lessons and one-on-one assistance.
All of the materials and equipment are provided and no experience is necessary. Please wear close-toed shoes, comfortable clothes, your hair tied back, and no scarves or loose clothing (such as long open sleeves that could pose a safety hazard)
Dates: Nov 7th, 14th, 21st, 28th, Dec 5th & 12th (6 classes)
