Community Celebration Talk/Workshop Visual Art

A Taster Session for learning the magic of enamelling! This exciting class offers the opportunity to experience the exciting and versatile medium of enamel. Learn how to add colour and pattern to metal, opening up endless opportunities. With time to experiment and then create a finished piece using cold connections, you will leave new skills and a fabulous unique piece of your own creation.

Your tutor will take you through some basic techniques used within enamelling to help you produce a pair of earrings or a pendant to take home with you! You will learn how to prepare the metal in advance of laying the enamel and how the firing process works, before fusing the enamel to the metal. You will also learn how to use cold connections like riveting to join and form a finished piece of your own design.

16+ only. If you need glasses to see things close up, please bring them with you. Making jewellery is fiddly!
