Enameling tools and supplies will be provided for your use. Lab fee will include handouts, enamels, supplies, tool usage and metals for five projects. Additional materials and supplies can be purchased from the instructor. A few basic metalworking tools will be available for use, but since our focus is on enamels and not metalworking, we will use mostly simple pre-cut metal forms.
