Details Fee Breakdown:
Tuition: $615
Material Fee: $50

Come explore the ways that a flat sheet of metal can be transformed into a volumetric object using nothing but a jeweler’s saw and a carefully-designed template.  Once formed, these vessels can be enameled using low-tech methods for adhering enamel to vertical surfaces. Finally, we will cover strategies for enhancing the finished enameled vessel, including basic silver fabrication, cold connection methods, and small-scale wood carving. This class focuses on design, technique, and craft, and is suitable for students of all skill levels.
