JAN HARRELL – BEYOND ENAMEL BASICS PLUS

From: $228.71

PREREQUISITE: Any skill level

Now that the enamel sticks to the metal and does not pop off—what other techniques are there? This workshop is for new students or for students who have taken the previous 3-day workshop.

In this fast-paced 2-day workshop, students will be able to move beyond the flat surface onto a small dimensional form, such as a saucer, bowl, or dapped domes that can be used in jewelry pieces.

Students will explore some alternate and underused enamel techniques. Many of the older techniques- sgraffito, basse taille, liquid enamel, and embellishments. Jan will have some new spins that she’s developed from 25 years of teaching in a continuing program of enamels at the Glassell School of Art in Houston, Texas. Exciting screening and decal techniques have really expanded the ability to add decorative patterns to enamel. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own shapes to create some finished pieces using some of their sample exercises.

Jan will bring lots of samples of the various techniques and will provide several small pre-coated metal to do quick and easy samples. She will also share a special PowerPoint presentation, possibly on the second day.

Come ready to broaden your enamel vocabulary with some new approaches to this wonderful medium that has us all fascinated.
