Are you from the land of many lakes? Has the state of Minnesota just stole your heart? Are you Minnesota nice? Show your Minnesota pride by wearing and designing your own one-of-a kind Minnesota pendant. You will start out with a one inch state of Minnesota shaped copper blank. You will add color and design to your copper blank with the use of a large variety of enameled powders and various stencils. In this class you will learn basic enameling skills. You will learn how to properly clean your copper and prepare it for the enameling process. You will also learn how to sift powdered glass onto copper. Then with repeated firings you will heat and melt the powdered glass by the use of a Mapp gas torch. Your finished pendant will hang from a 18 inch ball chain that you have patinated, polished and sealed. Come to this class and learn the art of enameling and take home a one-of-a kind Minnesota enameled pendant made by you. Supplies to create your torch fired enameled pendant are included in the $50 class fee.
Students should wear closed toe shoes, natural fiber clothing and have their hair tied back.
Additionally, a signature cocktail and appetizer is included.
