We'll cover torch and kiln firing, painting and sifting techniques, metal preparation, and several enameling techniques.
Completion of this introductory class gains you access to focused open studio times for enameling and use of the enameling equipment (open studio time for enameling is separate from general open studio due to the sensitivity of the materials).
Ages 14 and up are welcome.
