The workshop will provide an introduction to cloisonné on silver. Techniques covered will include preparing, texturing, doming and flashing fine silver blanks, bending and adhering silver wires, a brief introduction to composition and color selection, application of opaque and transparent enamels, color blending, kiln firing, and finishing your piece. Class includes materials to make a beautiful piece of cloisonné suitable for a pendant. Bezel setting for the pendant is not included.
Prerequisite: Enameling Level I, or prior experience with enamels.
Class hours will be Saturday and Sunday, March 25 and 26, 2023, 9:00am - 4:00pm, with a 1-hour lunch break each day (bring your own lunch).
