Previous students describe this as “a wonderful class” and “a great experience, and praise Guild Master Jean Tudor‘s ability to guide beginning students through the enameling process while providing plenty of creative freedom.
Learn the process of fusing glass to metal, combining the brilliant color of powdered glass with the warm glow of copper to make luminous objects and designs. Become familiar with layering colors together, placing the enamel in your design, and handling a kiln. Enjoy the delight of taking your work out of the kiln and finding it has changed from grainy, muted colors to a beautiful, shiny and smooth work of art — pure magic! No experience necessary. Ages 15+
* This class will be limited to a maximum of 8 students. *
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
This class will meet daily from 10am-noon and again from 2-4pm, with some additional studio time available for those who wish to continue working outside of class. Each day will focus on a specific enameling technique. Many students choose to continue working outside of class; however, this is not required.
Participants can expect to create 4-6 small pieces using a variety of enameling techniques including sifting, stenciling, and liquid flux.
What should I bring to class?
All enameling supplies will be provided. Please bring a sketchbook or several sheets of drawing paper, and something to write with.
