Open Studio, Has Prerequisite

Jewelry & Fine Metals Studio



Due to the safety requirements for using dry enamel, enameling is not offered during regular open studio time, so this is your opportunity. While a trained safety monitor is always on duty, this open studio isn't a class and no formal instruction is given.

To get the most out of this enameling open studio, it is recommended to prepare your metal in advance so you can focus on sifting techniques and kiln or torch use.

Some metals are available for purchase (please bring cash or check). Ask the studio monitor for assistance.


A $12 enamel consumables materials fee is included in the cost of this class.
