Forming and Enameling Bronze and Copper Screening

with Barbara Minor
Virtual Three-Part Demonstration Workshop using the Zoom Platform
 
August  7, 14 & 21, 2021   | Time: 1:00 -3:00PM ET
 
In this three part class, you will learn how to create and enamel three dimensional forms made from bronze window screen and various sizes of copper wire mesh using liquid and powdered enamels.    
We’ll be creating volume and three dimensional forms - using bronze window screen and various sizes of copper wire mesh – working with methods such as gathering, pleating, folding, creasing, forming, stretching, stitching and “freehand” manipulation to achieve lightweight, volumetric forms suitable for enameling jewelry or objects.  
Once the forms have been created we will enamel them using dipped, brushed or sprayed applications of liquid enamel in combination with and separate from sifted applications of powdered enamel.  
Additional information on decorative techniques - such as the application of gold or silver foil, gold leaf and glass seed beads and information on setting up an inexpensive spray booth - will be included.  
Class information includes…
- bronze and copper screen types, sizes, preparation, forming methods
- tools for manipulation of the screen 
- enameling work area set-up – choices of tools and safe procedures 
- liquid and powdered enamel types, preparation, application and firing methods
The structure and components of this class are intended to allow and encourage participants…
– to gain confidence with processes presented while exploring and experimenting
– to achieve exciting forms and surfaces that exceed expected results  
– to continue using the learned processes on their own
– to have fun while learning.
 *  This is a “demonstration workshop”.  Students can plan to work in their own studios between classes on techniques taught.
