Enamelling with Graphite at Hampshire School of Jewellery

Enamelling with Graphite at Hampshire School of Jewellery

About the Course

 Explore how to apply and decorate enamel on copper or brass. You will begin with a range of experimental test pieces, which you may choose to develop into a pendant.

The enamelling with graphite workshop will allow you to learn to pierce and clean sheet metal, apply a covering of glass powder that is then fired to provide a layer of colour. You will explore how to prepare the enamel surface to add graphite decoration through line, shading and text.

All materials and tools are included in the workshop. If you wish to use silver in your designs this maybe purchased on the day.  This class is suitable for beginners.

 Payment in full is required to book a place on this class.

This class will be taught by Michelle Kiek who has over 10 years experience of teaching jewellery making and runs Ophelia Ren Bridal.

This class is taught at our Basingstoke Studio; we are 5 minutes from the town centre and junction 6 of the m3. There is free parking available at the studio.

Obviously to reopen the studio following lockdown we have made several changes in the studio and to the way we work within it these include-
- Reduced class sizes of 6 maximum in each class with a space at every other bench to allow for metre + social distancing. Screens are also hung between the spaces.
- A tool kit at each one of these benches including most of the tools you will need however there are a few that need to be shared around the studio; these will need to be wiped down after each use and only one person to be at these areas at a time.
- Everyone to wear a facemask or face shield in the studio. Please bring one with you.
- Everyone to hand wash upon entering the studio and regularly throughout the class.
- If you wish to wear gloves please remove when using the torches to solder as they are a potential hazard.
- Cleaning supplies will be provided and I will be asking for help to wipe down your tools and work area at the end of each session.
- No cash payments; please pay for your classes online before your session and if you have any materials to pay for please bring a card so we can do payments on the card machine.
- A video system to film demonstrations and show them on a tv screen.
- Please bring your own drinks and refreshments to the studio.
We need everyone’s help to adjust to the new systems need everyone to appreciate the steps that we have put in place and to follow these new guidelines so we can all be as safe as possible.

Please note
If you display any symptom of the virus please DO NOT attend any sessions; follow government guidelines with regards to self isolating. Please give as much notice as possible and we will work with you to rearrange your lesson to another time.
Should you develop symptoms after your class please advise us so we can take the necessary steps with advising any one else you may have been in contact with at the school.
If there are further restrictions from the government I will of course re assess the situation and if we go into another lockdown we will close immediately.
