DARTY1a JPEG.jpgDuring this two day workshop, students will learn how to create enamels using sifted and basse taille techniques, setting them in innovative ways to create jewelry or other small objects. Setting possibilities include frames, prongs, tabs, rivets, and other cold connections. Basic sawing and soldering skills are recommended. Students may also bring finished enamels ready to be set if they wish to do more metalwork and less enameling.  Alternately, if individuals wish to spend the two days only exploring the enameling techniques, they can choose that option as well.
