Online Classes on the way!

Believe it or not, those of you who have been waiting for my online classes will soon be pleasantly surprised! Thank you for your patience with our big move. I have been taking some fantastic videos, photos and detailed notes of my process over the past few years and have some incredible tools and techniques to share with you! Now that we are settled I have the time to assemble these materials and bring these skills directly to your studio. I know many of you have requested this online option for enamel on steel, granular spray, sgraffito, and watercolor enamel painting techniques. I am so very grateful to have learned from my incredibly skilled enameling teacher and past professor John Killmaster, who has given me his blessing to pass these techniques on to you. Be sure to keep an eye out for my unveiling, as this is a wonderful solution for those of you who can not travel and already have a studio to work in at your own pace. Thank you for your continued interest. I’m really Excited!!!

JULY 2019 WORKSHOP

5-Day Summer Intensive

July 8-12, 2019

Go into depth with enamel on steel at our Bend, Oregon Studio.

Scheduled upon request, I am excited to offer this 5 day workshop to up to 5 participants who want to spend some extra  quality time with this craft.  We will begin by studying many samples, and learning what is possible with each technique. Participants will have 5 days to develop work while creating their choice of Panel, Wall Relief or sculpture, as well as test pieces and jewelry. You will learn to cut and shape the steel, how to prepare the surface for enameling, apply the ground coat and fire in the kiln. Next you will add the white granular spray layer and sgraffito methods to achieve fine detail with ease and control when drawing images, textures and marks in glass while also learning firing temps and techniques. Add depth and color with color spray and sgraffito, painting with Watercolor Enamels, Acrylic Enamels and Enamel Crayons, and explore with layering and highlighting using various tools for marks, effects and textures. The possibilities will expand your horizons!

There are wonderful places to stay nearby in Sun River, and many fun outdoor adventures await during your down time, hikes, bikes, floating the river,

Let me know if you are interested and I’ll send you the skinny!

 

 

Excited to share this Alchemy with you!
