About the Workshop:
Need to spice up your jewelry and metal objects with some color? In this workshop we will explore the many possibilities to adorn metal surfaces with enamel. Champlevé is a French term that describes enamels that are inlaid into designs made of metal with higher fields and recessed compartments. During this course, students will learn how to achieve these surfaces through an environmentally friendly electrolytic etching process while learning to use a variety of resists including direct application and more tech driven transfers like Press and Peel Paper and Vinyl. Wet, powdered enamel is then applied and the whole piece is fired in a kiln. Different finishes will be explained and students will complete the course with several wearable pieces of art. All skill levels are welcome. Cost of Workshop: $375 per person (Includes continental breakfast, snacks, drinks and parking daily!)
