k.browne decal_samples[1]Pattern on Pattern: Decals and Collage

(Saturday, July 22 & Sunday, July 23)

In this workshop we will experiment with enamel decals of abstract patterns, textures and images, made/provided by the instructor. Working with opaque and transparent enamels, participants will cut and collage decals to create compositions that express each individual’s design aesthetic. Color and enamel applications are an integral part of this process. The decal making process will be explained and sources supplied.
