Enamelled pendant decorated with millifiore
X

Description

This is a fun introduction to working with enamels on copper. You will learn how to prepare your copper blanks, apply your enamel, apply decoration and fire in the kiln.

You will build up your piece in stages with a firing in the kiln in between each stage. Your design will build up as you go and you will have a range of materials and techniques to play with. If you have worked with glass fusing you will love the speed with which you build up your design using many of the same techniques that you are already familiar with. If you are new to any kind of kiln work, you will love the excitement and magic of putting something into a kiln and bringing out a fabulous piece of your own work.

You will choose from a selection of copper blanks and then make pendants, earrings, key fobs and more.

Suitable for beginners.

Had a really enjoyable enameling session with Gen. She makes the process really accessible and fun, offering a wide variety of options in terms of what materials you can use/incorporate to create your final pieces. Thoroughly recommend.

I had a great time on this course. I learned a lot and came away with three enamelled items that I’m very pleased with. The course was friendly and well-organised. Genevieve demonstrated a number of techniques and made suggestions for adapting these, as well as answering my many questions.
She has a clear enthusiasm for her craft which was quite inspirational. I’d like to come back for the full-day course when dates are available.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for the lovely feedback. I had a really great afternoon with both of you. I will be in touch about dates for a full-day course very soon.

Had a fabulous day enamelling with Genevieve and two other really nice pupils. Genevieve's passion came through in her teaching and she puts everything into what she does. Her joining instructions were excellent. Her facilities and stock were perfect for what we were doing. Lunch was five star as well. If you are a bit nervous of using kilns - don’t be. It was a safe environment. I came away with some lovely pieces and I’m definitely going to go again. Thank you Genevieve.

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

Thank you for such lovely feedback. Having an enthusiastic group of students makes my life as a tutor so much fun and I loved the day too. You made some lovely pieces of work which you should be very proud of. I look forward to having you back for some more creativity.

I really enjoyed my day spent enamelling with Gen. Gen has a large range of resources to work with and is really enthusiastic and encouraging with her students, which was perfect for me as a newbie to enamelling. Thanks Gen for making me feel welcome in your studio and keeping me fed and watered throughout the day.

Really enjoyed my day learning the basics of enamelling. Gen provided excellent tuition and had lots of materials and supplies for me to experiment. She demonstrated various techniques for creating patterns and was on hand to help if I got stuck. Lunch was delicious too! Had a wonderful creative day and came home with lots of lovely work

Response from Wicked Gen Crafts:

I had a great day too teaching you about the fun and creativity to be had with enamelling onto copper.
