Cloisonné enameling is essentially drawing with wires and filling in around them with glass. Several processes will be discussed and demonstrated, but cloisonné will be the primary technique covered. It can be simple or complex. Everyone will learn how to use Harlan’s special jig for forming repetitive shapes in cloisonné. Participants in this workshop will also be composing haiku poems as a means to focus, relax, and foster a sense of community. Basic metalsmithing/jewelry skills and some enameling experience would be helpful, but beginners are welcome.

Harlan W. Butt (he/him) is an artist with more than forty years of experience working in metal and enamel.
