About the Course
This exciting course of enamelling on copper explores the skills and techniques of kiln enamelling, a colourful course. 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. These ancient techniques were first used by the Chinese, Greeks, Celts and Egyptians to decorate metal and add colour to metal jewellery and other precious objects.
During the day session, we will experiment with a range of decorative techniques to create your own one-off pieces, to make your own unique jewellery or small pieces. We will demonstrate and guide you through the processes involved.
As the workshop progresses you will learn the different firing stages and have the chance to do this yourself. Enamelling is a process, where you can layer colours on top of each other to create very interesting one-off pieces. Throughout the workshop each student will decide which techniques they would like to continue exploring to create your pieces. Everybody will go away with four or five pieces. Numbers are kept low for this workshop to allow for guided tuition and the opportunity for discussion.
We run this workshop based on 2 people minimum attending and a maximum of 3. However, if you wish to book a workshop for just yourself there would be a minimum fee of £120.
All materials for your 4 or 5 pieces will be included. Any additional pieces will incur a fee for additional materials used.

What's included in the price?
We include refreshments through out the day of tea, coffee or squash. We also provide biscuits to keep your energy levels up.
You will need to bring a lunch to enjoy but we ask for no seafood due to my allergy. You will need to avoid wearing clothing with long floppy sleeves as they will get in the way and jewellery which dangles in the way.
Course dates are flexible; please get in touch for the next available date.
