Enameling is a beautiful and ancient art form in which colored glass powder is heat-fused to a metal surface. Through demonstrations and exercises, students will learn several tools and techniques to make enamel objects for jewelry, including material preparation, methods of application, and finishing. The course will cover basic techniques including sifting, sgraffito, and wet inlay techniques. No previous experience with metalworking is required, though some basic knowledge of jewelry studio tools is beneficial. Each student will come away with a catalogue of samples and at least one enameled copper pendant. Copper and enamels will be provided for practice, exercises, and construction of personal projects. If students wish to work in silver, they will have to pay an additional fee at the end of the weekend to cover the cost of their silver.
