About the Course
Why not try enamelling in a fun, relaxed atmosphere? Suitable for those who have never enamelled before, and those whom may have, create a piece of enamel work that you can take home at the end of the session.
Complete beginners or intermediate enamellers welcome.
Enamelling is the application of powdered glass to metal and fired in a kiln to produce vitreous enamel. Different techniques are available to try, sifting, stencils work, embedding decorative media, wet packing and sgraffito.
Teresa will demonstrate and guide you through the all processes involved.
Throughout the session you will have a choice of different copper shapes and be able to produce a small picture or a piece of jewellery, which you will be able to take home on the day.
We also have themed enamel classes in which you can create bowls or try different techniques such as high firing and those mentioned above. Complete beginners are also welcome at these workshops.
We can also set up other dates for a group session upon request, and we will add more dates as the workshops become fully booked.
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.

I had an enamelling project in mind and although I was a complete beginner Teresa explained what we had to do and helped me with each stage from preparing the copper pieces through to the enamelling process. Excellent help and tuition and am happy to recommend her to anyone wanting to learn or have a go at the enamelling process.

I arranged this experience with my 2 sisters, one is very crafty and creative and the other has never crafted before. Teresa was a fantastic teacher, very encouraging and knowledgeable. We spent a lovely morning at the studio, the choice of items to make was brilliant and as a result we made 3 completely unique items. I will definitely be returning to learn more skills, I would highly recommend, thank you Teresa.

My sister and I had a brilliant time at Teresa's Enamel Workshop yesterday. We were beginners and were given really clear instructions and chose to make enamelled pictures. Teresa is an excellent teacher and kindly allowed us extra time to finish the pictures so that we didn't feel rushed and we are delighted with the results. Thank you for a fantastic experience. I would really recommend this workshop.

I recently did the two hour workshop with Teresa, with my mum and sister and we all thoroughly enjoyed it and we were thrilled with what we made. Teresa made it very relaxed and enjoyable and was very patient. I have tried many workshops and I think this was the most enjoyable and relaxing so far. Even if you aren't particularly arty, you can still come away with a lovely piece you can be proud of. A great introductory class and would definitely do again.

My friend and I spent the morning with Teresa two weeks ago. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole creative experience, including Teresa's relaxed, but expert, approach. As a total novice I felt inspired by what I could create, - and in a relatively short space of time ( just over 2 hours). Teresa was so encouraging of our own ideas, but readily gave advice on designs if we wanted this. We were equally thrilled by the pendants we each produced - which have attracted many positive comments from friends and family. Thank you so much Teresa for a wonderful morning, we will definitely be returning for another treat of an experience.

I had a fantastic time on this enamelling course with friends. Our tutor Teresa was patient, helpful and very informative. I achieved more than I had imagined as a beginner and came away with a beautiful pendant.
The course is great value! I’ll definitely be going back to Lappelli Craft Studio for more enamelling.

Helen Webster - - #18878
Before going, I felt a bit nervous that I might not be creative enough. I shouldn’t have worried. I had a great time and went away with something wonderful I could not believe I produced.
Thank you Teresa. I will be back for another go.

I have just attended a fantastic enamelling course with a lady called Teresa . I am not very artistic but she was so patient and made sure I was able to produce a fabulous pair of ear rings. I lost one of the pieces and it was not a problem as Teresa was able to help make another one .
The people on the course were very friendly and we were able to support each other in a very friendly and supportive environment . I will definitely come back for more

Had a fantastic time at the session. Teresa was incredibly patient and very knowledgeable. Extremely pleased with the work I produced considering I have no artistic flair. Would definitely recommend this course and will be booking a future session. Thank you for the inspiration.

Fantastic taster session yesterday with Teresa: I decided to have a go as I knew nothing about enamelling previously, now I think I'm hooked! Teresa was very knowledgeable, friendly, and patient, which made the experience even better. I now have a unique dragonfly pendant to show off! Can't recommend this session and Teresa enough :)

What an absolutely fabulous workshop. The morning was fun and informative. We made lovely pieces and I would definitely do it again.

Wow! Teresa gave me and two friends a fantastic enameling taster workshop at her professional studio in Blackwell. A lovely friendly lady, with a patient and relaxed tutoring style. She gave us individual attention and lots of choices, and ensured her explanations were geared to complete novices. She also provided a wonderful light lunch platter, tea and cake - a perfect chilled afternoon experience. Lovely memories, and a souvenir piece of our own artwork to take home. Highly recommended as a treat for yourself, or a gift for the person who has everything! Thank you Teresa! 😍

Had a super day with Teresa, learning about metal working, in particular fold forming. Came away with a much better understanding of the technique. Teresa is very knowledgeable and helpful.

Response from Lappelli Craft Studio:The copper shapes will look even more fabulous when you enamel them :)
I spent the afternoon with Teresa and had a great time! Such an interesting process and satisfying. I'm super pleased with my earrings too!
Helen - - #15726
My Mum and I had an enjoyable morning with Theresa. I had, a few months ago, made some dragonfly earrings , and today I made a pendant to compliment them, and my Mum made a beautiful tree vein design necklace.
We will definitely go to another workshop in the future.
