Enameling Boot Camp with Karin Cernik and Jennifer Walterscheid

Always been intrigued by enameling but don’t want to commit to a ten-week course?  Worried that a one-day workshop won’t give you enough time to decide if it’s for you?  We have the answer – Enameling Boot Camp!  Spend six days with us over two weeks, and we will teach you the basics of enameling (and some cool techniques and extras to explore) so you can decide if you are as hooked on this beautiful art form as Karin and Jennifer. All you need to bring is yourself, a desire to explore a beautiful new art form, and something for lunch (we provide snacks, but please feel free to bring something to share with the class.)  We will provide everything else needed – metal, enamels, tools, and a fabulous working environment.

Ages 16+ | Instructors: Karin Cernik and Jennifer Walterscheid

Dates:  July 15, 16, 18 and 22, 23, 25 | Price: $150.
