Description

Enamelling is the art of fusing glass onto metal using a kiln. In this one day course we will be exploring this ancient technique, learning how to fuse the enamel powder on to copper to create a glossy glass surface. You do not need any experience to book a place on the workshop and will be experimenting with simple techniques to create a piece of jewellery. You will learn the basics of enamelling, in a step by step manner.

 In the workshop we will cover the following aspects:

  1. Health and safety of enamelling.
  2. Preparation of the copper for enamelling.
  3. Applying counter enamel onto the back of your piece.
  4. Applying different types of enamel (Transparent and Opaque).
  5. Use of decorative media (millefiori, frit, copper wire, glass threads).
  6. Surface design using techniques such as stencils, sgruffito, sifting etc.

What is included?

– One copper blank that you will be able to make into a piece of jewellery. A variety of shapes will be available however if you would like to work on a specific shape or size then please contact Melissa before the workshop.

-Use of all tools and equipment e.g. kiln, firing forks, enamel powders in a range of colours, decorative media etc.

– Tea, coffee and biscuits to keep us going! Maybe even cake if you are lucky…
