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. This course is run by Genevieve Thompson from her workshop at her house in Halifax, West Yorkshire. This workshop is run in the afternoon from 2pm to 5pm. Morning workshops are run on other dates from 9:30am to 12:30pm. See alternative listing for dates.
