Instructor: Ashley Gilreath

Champlevé is a specialized process in which enamels are inlaid and fired into recessed areas of a metal surface. Utilizing the saw and solder method, spaces are created by piercing a design with a jeweler's saw, then soldering the design onto a flat background. Learn processes including depletion gilding, applying and firing metallic foils into enamel, and washing and wet packing the glass. Color theory and some sly tricks will further boost your abilities. Intermediate students welcome; previous metalsmithing skills preferred.

Tuition: $693.00
