Introduction to Torch-Fired Jewelry
Workshop Instructor: Scott Mattingly

Learn the basics of torch-fired enamels by making your own custom pendants and earrings. This learnshop will show how to fuse colorful glass to copper metal pieces using affordable tools and a torch instead of a traditional kiln. Using the torch, you will get up close and personal for the entire firing process. We will cover basic techniques including sifting and firing and then add in sgraffito and other techniques.
