JUNE 18–30, 2023
Kat Cole
Enamel: Ware and Wear

In this workshop students will make enamelware and/or enamel to wear. We’ll focus on construction techniques that will allow us to make and fire larger and more dynamic objects. Using basic forming and fabrication methods in copper and steel, each student will make a series (3+ pieces depending on scale and complexity) that focuses on the enameled surface. Metal techniques will include hand fabrication, silver soldering, hydraulic press, sinking, scoring and bending, and using a micro welder. Enamel techniques will include sifting, spraying, dipping, underglaze pigments, and finishing. All levels. Upper metals studio.

Note: the studio fee for this workshop is estimated at $200-225 per student.
