Hi everyone,

I will be teaching an enameling workshop at Metalwerx in Waltham,
MA. Information is listed below and on the Metalwerx website -

Enameled Beads by Barbara Minor
Experimental Enameled Surfaces: Expanding Possibilities
July 07, 2010 - July 11, 2010

Emphasis in this workshop will be on creating exciting surfaces
through exploration of various enameling techniques. Methods for
creating surfaces will include inlaying enamel shards, seed beads,
silver foil “spit balls” and copper or silver screening; punched
through counter enamel patterning; PMC slip bonded to etched copper;
dry screening and stenciling; embossed foil; luster decal
application and sgraffito.

Students will work on their choice of demonstrated techniques to
create sample pieces to serve as future technical reference.

Students should have beginning knowledge and skills with basic metal
and enameling materials, tools, methods and techniques.
