Kiln Enameling with Vitreous Enamels – Feb 5
Kiln Enameling with Vitreous Enamels
Enameling is a great way to expand ones sense of aesthetic in the arts. In this introductory course, four groups of glass enameling techniques are taught, dry application, wet charging, painting, and cloisonné. The two forms of enamel opaque and transparent are used throughout the course. In the cloisonné portion of the course cleaning enamels, wire preparation and finishes are taught. The decorative applications of foils, glass rods, and millefiori are shown so they can be incorporated into your artwork. As a student in this class, one can look forward to taking at least two pieces of finished enamel home with them.
With small class sizes (max 6 students) you will have the opportunity to have in-depth lessons and more one-on-one assistance.
All of the materials and equipment are provided for this class 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 propose a safety hazard)
