I was in Jean Stark=92s experimental monarch butterfly workshop. We
made gorgeous brooches and had a wonderful learning experience in
both technique and planning. Also, Hilton Head is a beautiful
place to spend a week!!! There are still some openings in her
Jean Stark is teaching two classes in Hilton Head, S.C. The classes
will be back to back. The first one, Byzantine cloisonn=E9 enameling
is October 18- 22. The beginning students are starting with a
simple 29th century version of a Byzantine design and the
intermediate students will do an apple, pear or an iris.
The second class is a monarch butterfly. This is a challenge
workshop. The students will determine the best procedural sequences
and then follow them to finish the piece. It is necessary to have
previous experience in basic enameling, granulation, and piercing.
This class will be October 25-29.
