In the art of enameling, cloisonné is probably the most widely recognized technique that comes to mind. Have you even wondered how cloisonné enamel is made? Learn this ancient technique from Michael Romanik, a master in the art form. In this introductory weekend workshop students will be guided through the various steps from beginning to end to create a permanent and brilliantly colored piece of jewelry using thin ribbons of fine silver wire and fused grains of glass. Techniques covered will include forming cloisonné wires, enamel preparation and application, kiln firing and hand finishing. Students will work on a 1” disk of fine silver, and are asked to bring in ideas that will translate easily into simple linear designs. An assortment of images will also be provided. This class is limited to eight students. Tools will be available for use; magnifiers are suggested.
