Enameling: A Workshop with Leslie Perrino
October 3 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm$99 – $110
Enameling is a timeless art form that involves sifting colored glass onto a copper base and fusing it in a kiln to create shiny, colorful works of art. In this workshop, Leslie Perrino teaches the basics of enameling, covering a variety of techniques including stencils, sgraffito, threads, silver foil, screens, and decals. She will also be covering new techniques for returning students. You will complete sample pieces for practice, and can then choose from a variety of projects. No experience required, and all materials supplied.
Bring a bag lunch and beverages.
