3 Day Virtual Workshop
Color and Texture in Enamel
with Jennifer Wells
Wednesday - Friday
January 13-15, 2021; 10:00 am - 4:00 pm EST daily
(virtual sessions 10am-12:30pm and 1:30-4pm)
In this workshop we will begin with metalworking techniques that work in collaboration with enameling, such as stamping textures, dye forming (with and without a press), drilling and working the metal to create forms that enhance the enamels and are conducive to setting. Once the metal work is done participants will begin working with enamels to emphasize the texture and form of the metal, layering with opaque and transparent colors as well as incorporating liquid enamel and P-3 to enhance the texture in the metal. Participants will experiment with grinding through layers of enamel, pencil drawing, watercolor enamels, and firing alternative materials into the enamel surface.
Pre-requisite: Basic metalworking and enameling skills are required.
I'm a studio artist and educator, originally from the U.S but currently living and working in Italy. I teach short workshops on various enameling and metalsmithing techniques throughout Europe and the U.S. Presently, I teach for Santa Reparata International School of Arts in Florence, Italy and serve on the Board of Vita Institute. My work can be found in the collections of the Enamel Arts Foundation and the Racine Museum.
