Cloisonnè Workshop with Joanne Conant
This cloisonnè enamel project would utilize opaque and transparent enamels to achieve the soft skin tones and shading of a face. The student can use a drawing supplied by the instructor or one of their own.
A base of opaque enamels will be used for the face and hair with transparent enamels used in subsequent firings to add shading and tone. The background will provide an opportunity to play with opaque, opalescent and transparent enamels to create clouds.
The instructor will provide 2in. fine silver discs* and cloisonnè wire. A lab fee will be charged.
*the fine silver eliminates time spent preparing copper and eliminating the fire scale each time the piece is fired.

| "Enameling: Form + Image" with Jessica Calderwood
A workshop on forming metal and enameling on the 3-dimensional forms is being held in conjunction with the 8th International Juried Enamel Exhibition.
Use die-forming and sinking to create dimensional forms in copper and then work enamel miniature drawings and paintings on forms. Ancient enameling techniques will take a contemporary twist through the use of ceramic underglaze pencils, sifted enamels, and overglaze painting enamels.
