Enamelled Copper Beads

A fantastic new workshop creating decorative, enamelled copper beads.

During the workshop we explore the use of vitreous powder and a variety of decorative techniques to cover a copper bead whilst using a blow torch. Once finished, the enamelled copper beads can be made into either a pendant or pair of earrings. Tutor will provide all copper beads and findings.

A fee for materials to cover the cost of making one beaded pendant and one pair of earrings is included in your course fee. If time allows and you wish to make any further items, extra plain copper beads will be available to purchase from the tutor on the day. These range from £2.50 - £4.00 depending on size.

Tutor will provide all materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your course fee.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A light lunch will be provided.

Decorative Enamelling Using Decals And Riso Screens

Experiment with different forms of decoration media to create exciting images on enamelled surfaces.

Decals are waterslide transfers that can be fired onto a prepared layer of enamel.
Riso screens are made by transferring an image onto a thin stencil called a master. Enamel powder is then pushed through onto a prepared enamel blank with a spreader.

Once you have created and applied your designs, you will be shown how to safely fire your work in a small enamelling kiln.

Both techniques enable you to create wonderful effects which you can then use to decorate a small dish, jewellery, key /bag fob or a small wall panel.

Tutor will supply all materials for this workshop. This cost is included in your course fee.

Extra copper blanks and decals will be available at additional cost.

This workshop is suitable for both beginners and improvers.

A light lunch will be provided.
