Gus & Maggie Masters Enameling Studio

The Enameling Studio (and the enameling program) is recognized by instructors and students as one of the best and most respected in the United States. This studio was dedicated as the “Masters Enameling Studio” in honor of Gus and Maggie Masters who started the enameling program in the 1970s. Located on the other end of the building from the Clay Studio, this space for enameling and hot glass is a well-supplied, light-filled work space. It’s recently been renovated with new work tables, kilns, counters and sinks. Beadwork classes are offered in this studio as well.

She joined Tom teaching metal classes at the Folk School in 2003 and has continued to serve as an assistant and instructor in many classes. Kay teaches enamel, combined with forging and engraving metal, and her own work focuses on using recycled metals. She has also worked as a hand engraver and silversmith for the past 20 years.
