Instructor: Dawn Lombard
Explore the spontaneity of torch fired enameling! In this introductory level class you will learn the art of fusing powdered glass (enamel) to metal using a handheld torch. Each participant will learn the preparation of metal, applying enamel, firing and proper safety. Hands on work allows you to use and understand the tools and supplies involved in firing this ancient art. In addition to enameling, this workshop will teach you how to use a hydraulic press, dies, files, center punch, pliers, and Whitney Roper punch. Using simple yet sophisticated surface design techniques, we will spend our time making many pairs of earrings that you can take home with you at the end of the workshop. No previous experience required.
