Thompson Enamel Class
Thompson Enamel earlier this month. The excellent and super-fun teacher was Paul Roche, who also teaches at the John C. Campbell Folk School. Paul used to be a chef and certainly lived up to his promise to teach enameling "outside the box." We learned a lot of shortcuts. (We definitely didn't wash or sift enamel.) We jumped in and starting hammering, pounding and firing right away.
My class results above are nothing fancy and don't begin to show how much I really learned in the class. I have more supplies en route from Thompson Enamel. I'll be getting up at the crack of dawn to play with them before the garage/outside air hits 95 degrees right before noon.
