Tues 26th May: Enamelling for Beginners
Tuesday 26th May: 10am to 4pm at Lechlade Craft Barn
Join Mark Vardy of Silvar Design for this one day workshop exploring the basics of enamelling on copper using a kiln.
Learn basic enamelling techniques, having fun working with copper shapes, enamel powders, frits and threads. Progress onto techniques such as sgraffito, stencilling and scrolling. We will also explore counter-enamelling, Simple cloisonné techniques and wet-laying.
No previous experience necessary.
Enamels will be freely available to use during the workshop. A starter pack of copper shapes are included and others are available to purchase on the day.
Do come and join us, learn a new skill, have some fun and make a number of unique pieces of enamelled jewellery.
