This workshop is suitable for those who have never enamelled before, and also for those who want to try different techniques.
Enamelling is the application of powdered vitreous enamel glass to metal and fired in a kiln. Different techniques are available to try, including sifting, screen printing or stenciling, embedding decorative media, wet packing and sgraffito. Not all of these will be able to be covered in one session, a brief discussion at the beginning will enable us to decide which project to follow.
Teresa will demonstrate and guide you through the processes involved.
There are a large choice of different copper shapes to select from, and you will be able to produce one or more enamelled pendants.
After a lunch break, you will select beads to complement your pendant and will complete the project by using basic jewellery techniques that Teresa will guide you through.
Children above the age of 14 are welcome, however a paying adult must be present to help with kiln and other health and safety aspects.
We are currently only allowing 2 people per session and adhering to strict social distancing measures.

Brought my friend Julia for this session and we were both incredibly pleased with the jewellery we made. Teresa was a lovely teacher who took us through all the steps in a relaxed, fun atmosphere. Overjoyed with the session, thank you!
My daughters and I had a wonderful afternoon making jewellery. We all came away with beautiful pieces to wear. Teresa was fantastic and so helpful.
