Winter / Spring 2014 Workshop Schedule

Well, another busy season has come and gone, and it's time to start off 2014 with some metalsmithing fun!  Below are your chances to get in on a class or workshop with me this Winter and Spring.  When possible I've linked directly to the sign-up for each workshop, but keep checking back because we're firming up more classes in the late Spring!

Metals/Jewelry : Enameling 
Enameling is an ancient process where glass is fused to metal through heat. Students will experiment with enameling on copper and are encouraged to explore the possibilities that this process allows. Annie will introduce a variety of enameling techniques such as sifting, stenciling, sgraffito, and basse taille. Students may apply these techniques to everything from pendants and earrings to decorative home items. No experience necessary. Most materials included in the fee.

Etching Workshop

Etching is a fabulous way to add design and texture to your metalwork! Learn different types of resist methods to be used in the etching process, including paint pen, stamping, and heat-applied print resists. We will make samples in copper and explore both traditional acid etching as well as electro-etching processes. This is a great pre-cursor to the Champleve enameling (etching recesses filled with enamel) Workshop to be offered in the Spring!
