From the Colorado Metalsmithing Association:
Registration is now open for three Days with Ken Bova: Thursday thru
Saturday, May 14, 15, and 16 at the Zephyr Street Studio in
Lakewood, CO. As a university professor, Ken can only take his
workshops on the road a few times a year and we are fortunate to
have him come to us.
In Ken Bova’s Dip, Dry, Draw & Fire: Working with Liquid Enamel
workshop, students experience the possibilities available with
liquid enamel while creating colorful and graphic imagery for
brooches, earrings, and small vessel forms. They learn techniques to
dip, brush, pour, paint, and draw on copper and torch fire this
versatile form of art.
The class also explores additional applications of sifting,
over-firing, and sgraffito techniques to get intense color effects.
Time permitting we’ll cover a variety of linking mechanics, an
assortment of bench tricks, and assemblage processes. The ability to
use a jeweler’s saw for piercing is helpful but not necessary.
Expect to make lots of samples and small wearable pieces. All
The fee is $390 for CoMA Members and $450 for Non-Members and there
are only 12 spaces available. There will be a reasonably priced
materials kit to purchase at the workshop. Click here to register or
