About the Course
‘An Introduction to Vitreous Enamelling with Naomi Nevill' is a one day course tailored towards people who would like begin to add enamel to jewellery.
We are pleased to be able to offer a choice of two beginners courses on consecutive days that demonstrate two differing techniques.
If you take the option of the traditional course, we will be focusing on achieving crystal clear transparent enamels using traditional enamelling techniques. You will learn how to properly apply, blend, and finish transparent enamels to a high standard, creating a beautiful refractive crystal like surface. We will be starting with copper testers and working our way towards a fine silver blank shape which can be made into a pendant or key ring.
Naomi is a talented and award winning young enameller and we are delighted to be offering her courses here at The Silversmithing Studio. The Silversmithing Studio is a dedicated tuition studio based at Henstead Arts and Crafts Centre, which is set in a tranquil location in rural Suffolk.
Course times are 09.30 to 16.00 with a lunch break, and morning and afternoon refreshment breaks.
For the Freestyle option day, please see our separate listing.
