Greetings!

If you weren't able to take C-Koop's enameling class last time she was here, don't worry!  She's teaching another Basic Enameling Class October 6th.  You can register online for this class by clicking here

In this class, you will learn the basics of torch enameling with Sara Lukkonen, the owner-artist of C-Koop Beads.  Using a Hot Head Torch™ learn to safely add colorful enamel powders to copper.

Make as many beads, pendants & headpins as class time allows!

C-Koop will also be teaching an Advanced Enameling Class on October 7th.  You must have either taken the Basic Enameling Class or you must have previous enameling experience.  You may register for this class by clicking here.

In this class, you will learn to manipulate sheet copper into a variety of different 3-D shapes.  Add enamels and other copper components to your creation.  Other enamel mediums will be introduced in this class and can be applied to your piece.  This is a good opportunity for you to take your enameling skills to a new level.    

 

Remember, seating is limited and these classes fill quickly.  Register NOW!
