Enamelling Workshop at Gravel & Gold!!!
I'm sooooo excited! I am on the email list for a super cute shop/boutique in San Francisco's Mission district called Gravel & Gold. Last week, they announced an upcoming Enamelling Workshop; I inquired, but was too late to join in the quickly filled event. However, much to my surprise, a few days after my initial inquiry, I was offered the opportunity to take a spot that had been vacated. I jumped at the chance! Yay, December 18th won't be here soon enough!
Here's a little bit of info from their website:
" Come and experience the magic of fusing glass onto metal! Gravel & Gold is hosting an evening of enamel shaking and baking 101 with local jewelry designer Raïssa Bump. In her own work, Raïssa takes a no fuss, direct approach to enamel and uses it for bold, rich color.
She will be teaching the very beginning basics of working with enamel. Students will sift opaque colorful enamels onto copper medallions and fire them in a kiln. Stencils can be utilized to layer colors and pattern. Etching paste can be utilized to create a matte finish. Participants will leave with a couple of medallions to keep for themselves or give as great handmade gifts. Medallions are equipped with a hole and jump ring to attach your own chain, leather or ribbon. "
Will post pics of my creations! Stay tuned....
