In the Heat of the Moment: EXPLORE/EXPAND/EXCEL with Torch Fired Enameling with Anne Havel
Using a torch, we will cover various methods of line creation and imagery within your enamel piece. Successive layers of liquid, acrylic, as well as transparent and opaque powdered enamels, techniques such as sgraffito, graphite, sifting, firescale, acid-etching, painting, and more will be explored. In addition under/maturity/& over-firing will be used to build and preserve drawings and layers in the final piece. No matter the student's skill level, there will be the opportunity to immerse oneself in new ideas and principles. Cold-connection and minimal soldering skill options for your piece(s) can be discussed, time allowing. This 3 day workshop is limited to only eight students. Use of studio tools included. There is a required student supply list.
