Metalsmith Amanda Moore is teaching enamel-smithing at Heidi Lowe Gallery.
Enameling is an ancient technique of fusing powdered glass to metal in a kiln. This class is perfect for beginners to enameling and metalsmithing. Participants will learn to layer transparent and opaque enamels by sifting. This class will cover basic metalsmithing techniques as well as an introduction to kiln-fired enameling. By the end of the four-week class, students will create an enameled piece and set it in sterling silver.
“I am so excited to have Amanda teaching at the studio. She is a great teacher and makes even the hard things fun,” said Lowe.
Enamel-smithing takes place from 5 to 7:30 p.m., on four consecutive Mondays starting Sept. 14. The class costs $350 including all tools and materials. No experience is necessary. Students must be 13 or older to take the class.
