Raissa Bump

Enamel Wow Medallion Workshop

11/14/10

$0

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 Raissa Bump. In her own work, Raissa 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.

We're asking a workshop fee of $45 to cover instruction and the cost of materials. To sign up, please write to lisa@gravelandgold.com or give us a call at the shop, (415) 552-0112.
