Drawing and Painting with Enamels ( 5 hours) 10.00 - 16.00 with hour for lunch
max of two people per workshop
A full day workshop exploring the exciting technique of using artistic techniques such as pencil sketching, water colour painting and under-glaze pencils to add a design to your enamel on copper. the designs are drawn or painted onto a prepared enamelled copper shape and then fired.
During the full day course, you will be guided through the process to enable you to make your own simple design on a pendant or panel which you can mount as a picture.
We will explore more advanced enamelling skills, so some basic enamelling techniques will be expected so it is advisable that you have attended one of the basic enamelling taster sessions first but not essential.
On this full day course (five hours ), you will learn to:
• Cover health and safety and the kiln firing process
• Prepare the copper prior to enamelling
• Develop simple designs for you to draw/paint and understand the principles of this technique
• Explore the use of the different mediums used to apply a design to the enamel.

I absolutely loved this whole day workshop. I learnt so much and Lynette has enormous patience and explains clearly step by step but also lets us get on and be creative. I would highly recommend this workshop. The lunch was delicious and I felt very spoilt. Thank you Lynette. See you again soon :-)
Response from LCEnamels:Hi thank you. I also enjoyed the day, sharing my love of enamelling with you both. Hope to see both again
I attended the one day course this week and absolutely enjoyed every minute. Lynette is very patient, explains clearly the techniques involved and also backs this up by demonstration. I had a particular design in mind and whilst it was ambitious for a first attempt, Lynette provided the support throughout and allowed me to overrun slightly in order to complete.
I fully recommend this course to anyone as no matter what specific knowledge you have, (I had zero) Lynette will make the day extremely fulfilling.
The piece I made was of particular meaning to my sister who loved it so much she was in tears, it's beautiful.
I look forward to returning someday with my daughter who I know will also enjoy the course.
Response from LCEnamels:Hi Ronnie
What an amazing course! My wife and I booked this course as it's something we both wanted to try. What can I say, Lynette is an amazing teacher and this course exceeded all our expectations. We were thoroughly guided through the whole process in extreme detail, and Lynette was very patient and more than happy to answer any questions we had throughout. We ended up with some amazing pieces to take home. Much recommended to anyone looking for a good shared experience!
Response from LCEnamels:Thank you for this lovely feedback. I also really enjoyed the day, sharing my love of enamelling to two wonderful people. I have added photos of you beautiful pieces to the gallery for the course as shining examples of what can be achieved during the days workshop.
I had a lovely time enamelling today with Lynette and Ann. I haven’t enamelled before but they were very kind and patient teachers! I came away with some lovely pieces.
I can’t wait to come again.
Thank you very much ladies x
Response from LCEnamels:Hi Evie
I was given a voucher as a present from a friend and chose this course as it's something I’ve never done before.
I had a great day learning how to enamel with Lyn and Ann! They explained everything thoroughly and were very helpful.
I have come away with some lovely pieces and one I can give back to my friend as a thank you present.
Bonus: the cake was lush!!
Thanks again :)
