(NEW) Enamel with Lily Smith
Monday (10 sessions); 10am-1pm (WT-ENA)
This class will explore the traditional art of enameling, which is the act of fusing colored powder glass to the surface of non-ferrous metals using a torch. After covering the basics of enameling, we will explore a variety of more advanced enameling techniques, including Cloisonné and Champlevé. Students will complete an initial set of enameling samples, and the remainder of the 10 week course will be devoted to the students completing self-driven projects. Students will have the opportunity to learn basic metalworking skills, including soldering, filing, and piercing to complete their designs.
The class fee includes all basic tools and enamels.
