“Creative Mark-Making in Enamel,” given by Jessica Calderwood, is a fast-paced workshop that will focus on different ways to make marks and render in vitreous enamel. Starting with copper sheet and porcelain-coated steel, demonstrations will be given on sgraffito, etching cream, underglaze pencils, ceramic oxides, overglazes/china paint, and glass beads. Expect to create a series of experimental process samples as a way to open up your approach and expand your visual language.
The workshop will be held at Glen Echo Park, MD on Saturday and Sunday, June 20 and 21, 2015. Hours will be 10:30 to 4:30. The cost will be $280 plus a $13 Park registration fee. There will be a $15 supply fee payable to the instructor. Class size is limited to 11.
