VA304 - Bee Keeper

$ 150  


“Bee Keeper” was inspired by a workshop with enamelist Ken Bova at John C. Campbell Folk School last summer. In this Bee Keeper workshop, students will learn basic simple sawing techniques and how to create a variety of extraordinary colors on copper using only 533 liquid enamel. Students will saw out the bee pattern plus the tabs on the back plate. Liquid enamel mixing techniques will be covered along with application and torch firing skills. Students will leave with a finished Bee Keeper Necklace. Beginners are my specialty!

Kit fee $25 paid to instructor at beginning of class covers most materials.
