Metals A Summer Session 3

Metals Summer Session 3
June 21 – July 3, 2020
Sharon Massey
Contemporary Enamel

Vitreous enamel offers endless possibilities for adding color, texture, pattern, imagery, and text to metal objects and jewelry. This workshop will cover techniques ranging from sifting to champlevé, including liquid enamels, decals, stencils, cloisonné, enameling on three-dimensional forms, and application to both copper and steel. We’ll explore how to incorporate enamel into your work—including setting and fastening techniques—as well as design and concept development. With an emphasis on contemporary and experimental approaches, this workshop will allow students to begin a studio practice in enamel or to expand their existing practice. All levels. Note: This studio has stairs that compromise access; it is made partially accessible by a stair lift. Code 03MA
