What to do with all your scrap copper? Make jewelry, and then enamel it! If you'd like to learn how, you can take my class Sept. 12-14 at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC. With the high price of copper, it just makes sense to use scrap! The class is titled "Reuse, Recycle...Enamel!" and is designed for beginners and intermediate enamelists. And when I say beginners, I mean it!
We will cover where to find scrap, including roofing copper, old copper tubing and other types, how to clean and cut it to make pendants, and then we will go through the process of enameling step-by-step! All materials and tools will be provided, so all you have to do is sign up, show up, and plan to learn a lot and have tons of fun doing it!
Go to www.folkschool.org or call the school at 828-837- 2775 if you're interested! And check out the pendants to the right that were all made from scraps!
