ENAMEL - vitreous surfaces

add colour and pattern to your jewellery and objects

Enameling is one of the world’s oldest technologies. Its brilliant colour and durability make it a favorable technique for jewellers.

This enamel workshop is aimed for anyone interested in working with enamel, as a way of adding colour and texture to copper. It can be used painted, dripped, sgraffito, layered and ground back, textured and more. You will have the opportunity to experiment with all these techniques, using opaque and transparent enamels and using the kiln to design and create jewelry pieces. Enameling involves fusing powdered glass onto your surface, like copper, silver, gold and firing it to create hard decorative surfaces.
