Kiln Fired Enamelling with Katie Sanderson. Half day workshop



Come and join me for an enamelling workshop from my studio in the beautiful Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, and experience the ancient craft of enamelling on copper. Make your own kiln fired enamelled creations, these may include pendants, earrings, brooches, cufflinks, key rings, plaques and pictures all taken home that same day. With step-by-step guidance and tuition I will demonstrate each stage as you progress, and offer one-to-one guidance where appropriate. All workshops are suitable for complete beginners or those that would like to further their experience. I keep my workshop size to a maximum of 6 students so I can give everyone plenty of my time. Enamelling is thought to go back some 3500 years and although now done with modern equipment, these wonderful processes can be incredibly addictive and even with just a small amount of time you will be amazed at what you can achieve. For those of you returning to do more with me, you may want to come with a project in mind, or simply want to try new techniques. You are welcome to discuss this with me when booking. I have set workshop dates, but I am also happy to book bespoke dates and times to suit individuals or groups.

What's included in the price?

All tuition, tools and materials are provided, but materials are charged for in addition to the workshop fee. This usually costs around £8 and is paid for on the day. Tea, coffee, are provided, and if you want to go for lunch afterwards I can give you the details of the many lovely local places we have near by.

Over the past 14 years I have explored enamelling through experimentation. After first being introduced to it by my mum, who packed me off to Nottinghamshire with a kiln and a box of enamel powders. I then became mainly self taught through embracing the freedom of the kiln. I’ve expanded on that first box of enamel powders, and now bring in many techniques to my pieces and my teaching.
