Enamelling Day, Learning To Stencil And Sgraffito

All Events


This class is suitable for beginners and to those with some enamelling experience. Working on copper sheet, you will explore a variety of techniques. These will include: sifting, stencilling, sgraffito and mark-making. We will be exploring ways of mixing, layering, and juxtaposing colour, using pattern to enhance the enamel.

You will learn to understand how to control the sifting and the firing, allowing you to achieve a more refined and interesting surface. You will be taught through a series of demonstrations and one-to-one instruction. You will be encouraged to experiment and to develop your skills through the production of a series of samples. You may then want to produce a finished piece that can be used for a pendant, earrings or brooch.

The tutor will bring a selection of samples which will help you to appreciate what is possible with the techniques covered on the course.
