3-Day Workshop

Cut and Fold Enamel Vessels

instructed by

Nash Quinn



June 26 - June 28, 2020

Friday - Sunday, 10:00 am - 5:00 pm daily

The class is beginner friendly- no experience necessary.

In this workshop, students will learn the basics of metal manipulation, design, and color theory by creating colorful, enameled metal vessels.  It's about design-volume, profile, negative space, symmetry, repetition and color.  Using precise measuring and layout techniques, paper models, and a jeweler's saw, participants will transform flat sheet metal into a variety of volumetric metal forms.  These forms will then be coated in vitreous enamel and kiln-fired, resulting in a chromatic array of fun, experimental vessels.


Nash Quinn is a metalsmith who works with a variety of materials, techniques, and formats.  Born in Wyoming in 1984, he received his BFA from the University of Wyoming in 2012, and his MFA from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania in 2015.  He currently lives in Philadelphia, PA with his partner, fellow metalsmith Jera Lodge.  Nash is a faculty member of Rowan University, and teaches, lectures, and exhibits his work nationwide.

  • Jeweler's saw frame and approx. 2 dozen 3/0 saw blades, with extras available in case anyone runs out
  • Sawblade lubricant
  • Ultra-fine-point Sharpie marker
