The Enamelist Society (TES) started as a national organization for enamelists, but has grown to be international. We hold a conference every two years with workshops and an exhibition. The lastest conference was in July/August 2019.

On Aug 5, 2019 I got back from the bi-annual conference and had so much fun and learned new things (for ex: I took a workshop on electroforming). it's so great to meet new enamelists and visit with ones I've known for years, but rarely see. One of the really exciting activities at the conference is the Pin Swap - I made 24 pins and ran out quickly. This is a way to get other enamelists work and so many pins were so innovative.
