The 2021 Silent Auction is underway! We do not have a live auction with this year's virtual event as there would be too many moving parts. We thought only having a silent auction would be the best path forward. Check out the over 40+ items and artwork here! You will need to make an account with BetterWorld to bid on items.
The Enamelist Society is excited to host our very first virtual Enamel Symposium this summer, from July 30th - August 2nd, 2021. This will be an all online event and will include a variety of inspirational learning opportunities for all. Included in this symposium will be immersives (workshops), speakers, presentations, jam sessions, breakouts, auctions, and more!

Our in-person 2021 Conference has been postponed until 2022, and will now be held at Arrowmont.
The 2022 Conference and Exhibition, titled Alchemy6, 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 18th Biennial International Juried Enamel Exhibition and 14th 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.
