INTRODUCTION TO ENAMEL
Katie Newell

Have you ever wanted to incorporate color into your jewelry and metal smithing practice? Enameling is a truly unique and artistic process in art and jewelry. In this class we will explore a variety of techniques and experiments in enamel. Learn how to fire pieces in a kiln, as well as with a torch. Demonstrations will be given throughout the course, and students are highly encouraged to make samples and play with color. No experience is necessary, but jewelry experience will be helpful!
