Workshop description ~
Join instructor April Wengren for a fun one day class (choose either Saturday or Sunday)!
Students will first create an enameled piece using the amazing crackle method. Watch the flame create the magic of glass enamel crackle right before your eyes! “Crackle Enamel Queen” Jean Van Brederode will be on hand to assist students in achieving a great result.
Next, students will be creating a fibula pin from which to hang their enameled piece to make it wearable. Fibulas are the oldest form of a brooch and leave great room for artistic interpretation and a wonderful addition to your jewelry-making techniques!
So let’s have fun with Flame and Fibulas!
WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:
(1) How to prepare copper for enameling
(2) Proper sifting of 80 mesh enamels
(3) Use of crackle enamel
