More fun and learning with the firing of enamels on copper
4 in stock.
This session builds on the introduction to working with enamels on copper from the Enamelling Taster. You will refresh your existing skills, learn new techniques and work with new products to decorate your copper blanks. You can choose what you want to make/decorate and pay only for the materials that you use.
You will build up your piece in stages with a firing in the kiln in between each stage. Your design will build up as you go and you will have a range of materials and techniques to play with. If you have worked with glass fusing you will love the speed with which you build up your design using many of the same techniques that you are already familiar with. If you are new to any kind of kiln work, you will love the excitement and magic of putting something into a kiln and bringing out a fabulous piece of your own work.
Techniques/Materials that you can work with:
Imbedding copper wire
"Printing" using stamps
Making enamel flakes
Drawing on enamel
Applying silver and gold leaf
You can choose from a selection of copper blanks and then make pendants, earrings, key fobs, brooches, mini pictures and any ideas of your own using the available materials.
Price includes all tools and kiln firing. Materials are paid for additionally at the end of the workshop based on the amount of copper and materials that have been used. Jewellery fittings, chains, clips etc can also be purchased.
