Back by popular demand, this 4 day workshop is open to 5 participants who want to learn this uncommon approach to enameling and spend focused time with this craft.  We will begin by studying many samples, and learning what is possible with each technique. Participants will have 4 full days to develop work while creating a Wall Relief or Sculpture, as well as test panels and jewelry, each with a lustrous and colorful glass finish that will never fade.

You will learn to design, cut and shape the steel, prepare the surface for enameling, apply the ground coat and fire in the kiln. Next you will add the white granular spray layer and use sgraffito methods to achieve fine detail with ease and control when drawing images, textures and making marks in glass, while also learning appropriate kiln-firing temps and techniques. Add depth and color with Liquid Form Enamels, Watercolor Enamels and Lusters. Experiment with layering and highlighting using various tools for mark-making, effects and textures. These techniques open avenues for creating surface treatments that truly allow for the freedom to be expressive, or to make very careful marks, with a variance in line quality so you can work in virtually any style!

If you are coming from out of town, there are many wonderful places to find lodging close to our studio in nearby in Sun River.  Many fun outdoor adventures also await you or your traveling partner: hiking, biking, boating, fishing, birding and nature sketching to name a few.
