Join Mark Vardy for this one day workshop to explore more in-depth enamelling techniques on copper using a kiln. Lots of exciting techniques will be discussed and participants will have time to try their hand at many of them.
We will look at counter-enamelling, painting with enamel, cloisonné techniques, wet-laying of enamels and explore plique-a-jour.
Enamels will be freely available to use during the workshop. A starter pack of copper shapes are included and others are available to purchase on the day.
Do come and join us, have some fun, and make a number of unique pieces of enamelled jewellery.
Please wear closed-toe shoes and old clothes. Long hair must be tied back.
