Contact course provider
About the Course
In this one day workshop you will use a choice of copper blanks in shapes such as dragonflies to embrace our natural environment. You will learn how to fuse glass to copper in the kiln at temperatures starting from 750°C to create wonderful glass jewellery. Toni will take you through the basics of enamelling, including counter-enamelling, sifting, wet-packing and applying glass media. By the end of the day you will have made around 3 enamelled pieces suitable for jewellery, or perhaps for mounting to make your own piece of art.
