This workshop is designed to introduce you to the use of kiln-fired enamels on fused art glass. Starting with exploring the 2 different types of enamels, their properties, and their application.  We will be using line drawings provided by the instructor so that our focus remains on application techniques. Each of these techniques are adaptable to your own future artistic expression.
This is a fast-paced workshop so we will move from project to project to make the best use of our time. We will also dive into kiln firing schedules, application of French cleats for hanging, and adapting photos into layers.
