This exciting day course explores the skills and techniques of kiln enameling. We will be fusing finely powdered enamel onto the surface of copper. These beautiful techniques were used by the ancient Chinese, Greeks, Celts and Egyptians to decorate metal and add colour to metal jewellery.

If you love working with colour you will enjoy this enameling workshop; the combinations are limitless and the results swift and exciting as they emerge from the kiln. We will experiment with a range of simple decorative techniques to create your own one-off pieces to make into unique jewellery.

On this day course you will learn to:

Prepare copper for enameling
Make several sample pieces using a range of techniques
Explore the use of opaque and transparent enamels
Use decorative inclusions (e.g. frit, glass threads, millefiore)
Cover health and safety and the kiln firing process
Explore colour, and surface designs with stencils, printing and drawing
Design a final piece to finish and mount on jewellery findings by the end of the day
A supply of silver-plated jewellery findings will be available on which to mount your sample pieces and information will be provided on suppliers of enameling equipment and jewellery findings should you decide you want to do more!
There is a limit of 6 people per workshop.
