We'll be exploring enameling step by step, learning to fuse finely powdered enamel onto the surface of copper to create a beautiful glossy glassy surface. These ancient techniques were first used by the Chinese, Greeks, Celts and Egyptians to decorate metal and add colour to metal jewelry and other precious objects. You will learn the basics of enameling, including: • Cover health and safety and the kiln firing processes • Prepare copper for enameling • Applying a counter enamel • Explore the use of opaque and transparent enamels • Use decorative inclusions (e.g. Frit, glass threads, millefiori, and copper wire) • Explore colour, and surface designs with stencils, or rubber stamps. You will design at least one piece to finish and mount on jewelry findings by the end of the day. More copper will be available for purchase on the day. Get in touch for more information.
