Previous students praise Guild Master Jean Tudor‘s ability to guide beginning students through the enameling process while providing plenty of creative freedom. A student from last summer wrote, “Jean is a gift. Her ability to teach at the student’s level is amazing.”
Referring to the title of her class, Pinch Pots and Pendants, Tooling and Scratching, Jean writes, “Everybody needs those things and those skills, right? So, how do you form a simple container? How do you enamel on it, with all its steep sides? Thin, thin copper sheets and any sgraffito tools we can find make it easy. Come join the fun.”
Yes! Come join the fun and 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!
All experience levels welcome, including beginners. Ages 15+
What will class time be like? Will I need to work outside of class?
This class will meet daily from 9:45am-12:45pm, 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 6-8 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.
