Enamelling

During this three day workshop participants will have ample time to get to grips with enamelling on copper.  We will use enamels (both dry and wet), and also investigate the use of the kiln as well as considering health and safety precautions.

 

Day 1

The first day will be spent having fun working with copper shapes, enamel powders, frits and threads.  We'll go step by step through some basic enamelling techniques. We will also learn how to use the pendant drill to make holes where necessary.

Day 2

We will further develop our skills on the second day by trying techniques such as scraffito, stencilling and scrolling.  We will also look at counter-enamelling.  Cloisonné techniques and wet-laying of enamels will be covered today.

Day 3

On day three we will continue to investigate and develop our knowledge of enamelling techniques.  Participants can use painting enamels or try their hand at more complex techniques like Plique-à-jour.

To join this workshop you don't need any experience as we will start from scratch.

A starter pack of copper shapes and copper sheet are included in the course fee. Enamels will be freely available to use during the workshop. Findings are available to purchase from the tutor. No tools are necessary but it may be useful to bring a set of basic jewellery pliers.

Do come and join us; learn a new skill, have some fun, and make a number of unique pieces of enamelled jewellery.

The cost of this course including accommodation is between £450.00 and £475.00 depending on your choice of room. This includes all materials needed for the course.
