Exploring Liquid Enamels
Originally formulated to glaze steel in the 1800s, liquid enamels are referred to as industrial or porcelain enamels because of their similarity to ceramic glazes. They can be painted, splashed, airbrushed, and combined with other media to add spontaneity to enameling. Students will use these enamels, in conjunction with more standard forms of enameling, to create several test tiles and a small wall piece on copper. This is an entry-level class, although those with basic enameling skills are welcome.
New Health and Safety Guidelines
All students must review and adhere to all of The Crucible's Health and Safety Guidelines to best protect our students and staff during this public health crisis. Classes have been modified to Alameda County’s latest safety recommendations and will continue to adapt as things change. Starting Nov. 1, students age 12+ must present a negative COVID test or proof of vaccination before each class session. If your class is cancelled by The Crucible due to updated county guidance, we are pleased to offer you a refund for a class or session that cannot run.
