I wanted to advise the SCA in the Houston area about a new modern guild, the Houston Enamelist Society. This is a non-SCA guild, about the art form of vitreous enameling.
They have held one start up meeting back in April, planning to host a meeting once a quarter. Meetings are located at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft (HCCC), in the museum district, currently on Saturday mornings. This is a loose group, no officers, just a facilitator and a Yahoo Group. Edith Koeppen is the current facilitator until the end of
the year, then someone else can volunteer for a quarter. Marsha Greene is handling the Yahoo group. We have no dues, and will only collect money when we schedule a workshop. This is an opportunity to stay in touch with the enameling world.
The next meeting will be this Saturday, July 7th, at HCCC, 10:00am, as we go forward with our new Houston Enamelist Society. Edith Koeppen has a great demonstration scheduled Saturday. She will demonstrate enameling copper beads and will, no doubt, have samples of some really nice beads she has done. Feel free to bring your show-n-tell.
Please take a look at Houston Enamelist Society Yahoo Group website at http://groups,yahoo.com/group/houston_enamelist_society/. Join the group online so you can get future notices about what our Group is doing. Under Photos, start your own album.
I realize this Saturday is also Coronation which is a conflict for some who maybe interested; so I'll post future programs each quarter, if there is interest from the SCA artisans in the area.
If any questions, please ask,
