The Enamelist Society holds a biennial (every 2 years) Conference in various parts of the United States. The next conference will be held July 31-August 7, 2019 at the University of Oregon in Eugene, OR. We will make the  prospectus and program available as we put them together.

The 2019 Conference, titled Alchemy5, will be similar to previous conferences; the morning sessions filled with a keynote, panels, speakers and a general membership meeting. The afternoons consist of "breakout" sessions where multiple presentations and/or demonstrations on various technical or marketing topics are held every hour. Evening events include an opening reception for the Exhibitions, our Saturday night auctions and the Sunday night closing party. The ever popular pin swap begins as attendees arrive and a vendor's area will be available throughout the conference to browse and purchase enamel related items and books.

The 17th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition and 13th Juried Student Exhibition will again accompany the conference. In addition, a presenter's invitational exhibition and an "Instant Gallery" will be open for public viewing. The Instant Gallery consists of 1 or 2 pieces of enamel work brought by conference attendees. This work may be for sale and may be accompanied by a small photo of the maker in order to facilitate networking between attendees.

The Enamelist Society holds a raffle, a silent auction and a live auction during the conference. Donated items include enamels, tools, books and, of course, enamel pieces. Auction proceeds help support Society grants and educational activities.

Three day workshops surround the conference. We will make the 2019 Conference workshop list available once it is finalized.
