We’ll be exploring enamelling step by step, learning to fuse finely powdered enamel onto the surface of copper to create beautiful a glossy glassy surface. During the half day taster session, we will experiment with a range of simple decorative such as Frit, glass threads, millefiori, and surface designs with stencils. Lynette and Ann will demonstrate and guide you through the processes involved. You will design at least one piece to finish and mount on jewellery findings by the end of the day. What’s included in the price? One copper blank which you can make either into a pendant, key ring a small picture. You will have a choice of different copper shapes. A supply of silver-plated jewellery findings will be available on which to mount your sample pieces. We limit each workshop to a maximum of 6 people to ensure individual attention and faster learning.
Tutors: Ann Jones and Lynette Charles.
