It’s a Charming Thing, Movement and Glass with Amy Johnson

Amy Johnson, an enamel artist from Rochester, Minnesota, blends together metal, fire, and glass to give life and color to her jewelry. She also melds metal to fashion beautiful sterling silver spinner rings, copper bracelets, necklaces, and earrings; each piece has a personality of its own. Some of her work is intricate and alluring, while other pieces resemble a whirlwind of color and light. Amy’s enchanting artwork allows the wearer to embark on a journey of whimsy and laughter.

Let's Experiment!!!  Do you want to see glass move?  Crackle? Divide? In this class you will play with enamel and experiment with reactions.  Each enamel colorant has a different expansion rate. Through experimentation, you will discover how combining  a low-expansion-rate enamel called "crackle" with different colors and temperatures can make glass move differently. Instructor and Enamelist Amy Johnson teaches this class on Sat., June 8, 10am - 1pm.

Come and play with movement and glass!  Learn the art of enameling, the process of binding powdered glass to a metal surface. In this class, you will learn basic enameling skills. You will learn how to sift powdered glass onto copper and then fuse them together with a Mapp gas torch.

By the end of this class, you will have created a variety of one-of-a-kind charms from your experiments with colors and heat.  You will attach jump rings to your charms, and I will provide a 18-inch chain so that you can alternate and wear your charm pendants.

Students should wear closed-toe shoes, natural fiber clothing and have their hair tied back.

Price is $45 plus $10 supplies.
