Add dynamic color to your jewelry with enamel! This two session class will introduce you to the vast world of enameling. 

Topics to be covered include: 

Torch and kiln firing, painting and sifting techniques, metal preparation, and several enameling techniques. All base materials will be provided.

Completion of this Intro class gains you access to focused open studio for enameling and use of the enameling equipment. Open studio time for enameling is separate from general use open studio due to the sensitivity of the materials being used.
