You will create your own set of flowers by applying decorative forms of enamel to floral shaped copper blanks. Between each application, you will heat your piece in a hot kiln to bond the decorative enamel to your copper piece. You will also fix a copper stem to each flower and can also fix additional copper wire elements to enhance the size and design of your flowers. You will also decorate a copper pot into which your finished pieces will sit. The finished flowers will sit inside the decorated pot and this will be placed into a wooden base.
To decorate your copper, you will work with a range of enamel powders, frits, threads, millifiore and more.

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.
