Information about Enamelling Master Classes-
The lessons are designed to appeal to jewellers / designer makers /
artists that want to explore enamel and learn about the medium.
All are welcome from beginners through to makers who already have experience but want to discover more and develop their portfolio of work. Enamel presents many versatile techniques and the opportunity for individual expression is wide open.
Classes are tailored to maximum of six participants per day.
The main equipment and tools for enamelling will be provided.
However there will be additional materials to purchase as part of the course ( i.e. Silver / precious materials ) and you may wish to have your own set of tools with you. A list of what is on hand and what you will need to bring will be sent on booking.
Below- Examples of work made during the workshops
It is well worth a visit and investment to take part in a Masterclasses here. I can highly recommend! I feel inspired and motivated to develop techniques learned further and work with the material/process through experimentation, exploration of surface treatment/finishing and textural qualities.
The workshops I took part in were; Mark-making, Contemporary Cloisonné, Surface treatment and Finishing
A fundamental element of my work revolves around the surface
quality whether it is adorned, decorated, embellished, textured, plain,
matt/shiny including the consideration of a materials characteristics.
Now I've just got to get myself an enameling kiln to develop and investigate further!
