Introduction to Enamelling With Sara Barker

From: £65.00 (per person)

Explore your love of colour in our introduction to enamelling class with expert tutor Sara Barker.

You will be introduced to the simple yet effective techniques of sieving and dry brushing coloured enamel powders onto copper and kiln firing.

You can create textures and patterns as you fire layers of enamel onto copper blanks.  You will learn the foundation skills necessary to produce some samples to keep, as well as experiment with the materials.

Suitable for complete beginners and a great addition to metal clay and other jewellery making techniques.

You will make at least 4 pieces that can then be turned into necklaces, earrings, pendants or charms with the addition of jump rings, chains and metal findings.

Some copper sheet and all enamels are included in the course fee. Extra copper can be purchased on the day if required.

Only 8 spaces available on this three hour session, 10am until 1pm.
