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.
Full Day: 10am to 4pm
£75 per person
Materials are approximately an extra £15 per person paid on the day.
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.

Four of us have booked a full day’s course with Katie. Although some of us have already done some enamelling, we were delighted to find out a number of new (to us) techniques.
Katie is very knowledgeable about her craft and is enthusiastic about passing the knowledge onto her students. She is incredibly well organised, creating a very safe working environment.
We’ve all went away happily tired with a number of enamelled pieces.
Thank you, Katie.
Response from Katie Sanderson, enamel artist:Hi Olga, thank you so much for your very kind review. I hope to see you all again.
I did this course early July and it was fantastic. There were 4 people on the course and we all went away with a set of beautiful enamelled items. Katie demonstrated the basic techniques, but most of the day is about having a go with Katie there to help and offer suggestions. She is very knowledgeable and happy to answer any questions. It was a very relaxed and supportive atmosphere. I would recommend it to anyone who would like to try enamelling, who wants to improve their enamelling or just anyone who would like to try something new.
Response from Katie Sanderson, enamel artist:Thank you so much Eleanor, wish you lots of fun exploring this wonderful craft further.
