New Workshop Series Starting in 2018
We have decided that it is important to recognize those in our field, whom we think are master educators and who teach what have become known as “classical” enameling technique. Our first Masters Series Workshop will be in March 2018 with Ruth Ball as our guest instructor. Stay tuned for more information and others the Center will be hosting.
Large Scale Enameling at KVO
Thank you to all who have participated the 3-day residency program sponsored by the Center at KVO Industries. . Facilitated access to the factory for individuals artists who want to do hands on work in the factory for a reduced day rate and at the same time work with other artists is proving to be very popular.
The last workdays of 2017 have been cancelled due to the turmoil caused by the northern Califirnia fires. KVO is OK.
All workshop presenters, past and present, have been invited to participate in the Center’s first online exhibition. Part of the Center’s mission is to promote all those who are teaching in the field. We hope that by featuring these wonderful artist/teachers in this first exhibition that we can honor the gift of their knowledge that they have so graciously given to their students and to all who come in contact with them. And show off their most current work!
