4th Annual NCEG Conference and Workshop 2003

**New  Pictures of Conference Below Announcement

                          Saturday, January 18, 2003

The Conference was held in  the Humanities Building B of the California College of Arts and Crafts (C.C.A.C.) at the Oakland campus.

The NCEG conference, over Martin Luther King Jr.. holiday weekend, has been a great way for members and non-members to meet each other and catch up on the latest in the world of enameling.

This one day event  featured talks and demonstrations about torch-fired enamel beads, filigree plique-a-jour, and cold connections as a way to fabricate metal for enameling.

The conference provided an opportunity  to buy, sell, or trade enameling and metalworking tools and supplies.  Coral Shaffer from Seattle, who gave a workshop following the conference, was  on hand during the conference to show and sell supplies in her persona as the owner of Enamelwork Supply.

After the conference there was a group dinner at Café Rustica on College Ave.
