Fun taster of Enamel Jewellery
About the Course
This workshop is suitable for beginners or if you would like to add to your existing skills.
You will be taught by Fee who has many years teaching experience and been making jewellery for over 30 years.
In the taster session you will be shown how to use vitreous enamel powders and how to fuse them to copper to create wonderful coloured pieces of jewellery. You will have the choice of copper shapes to choose from and a selection of enamel colours and decorative inclusions to use. There will be a supply of fittings to mount your jewellery whether for a pendant or a set of earrings or both! Fee will guide you through each process, the techniques are easy to pick up and you will create a range of beautiful pieces to take home and be treasured or given away as gifts.
This course is set at Bigbury Mint, which is a working Medal Mint, the light and airy metal workshop makes a perfect place to progress your Jewellery making skills.
