Hi there. This will be my first time at this biennial Conference
held at Arrowmont (Gatlinburg, TN) this September.
Can anyone provide feedback? I am having a hard time choosing a
workshop for the pre-conference. Has anyone taken classes with Jan
Harrell, Chris Hentz or Sarah Perkins? I’d like to take all 3, but
they are all at the same time and I’m struggling. Each class is 3
days. Jan is teaching image transfer, Chris soldering for enamel,
Sarah Line in enamel. Complete descriptions can be found at :
This is a business trip and will probably be 2K so I need to make
sure that I can take away skills that I can incorporate and push my
enamel with. Much of my current work has enamel and found objects. I
have had some cloisonne training and need to spend some time
developing skills here. I plan to do this in the summer, although I
do not use this in my current work, it is part of the long term plan.
From the feedback I have gotten, Arrowmont is described as a magical
place. The conference came highly recommended and if you are curious -
