Experimental Enameling on Steel with Sharon Massey
September 10 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Date: Saturday, September 10, 2022
Description: In this workshop, students will learn several techniques for enameling on steel, including champleve and liquid form enamel. Because working with steel is different than working with non-ferrous metals such as copper, students will learn a variety of techniques for cleaning and preparing the metal that are unique to steel.
Students will leave with several samples of techniques learned.
Tuition: $95 + $40 materials fee
Materials: Students should bring rubber gloves and a face mask. All other materials will be provided.
