Description

In this one-day workshop students will learn how to use torch fire enamel to add colour to jewellery and make a pair of enamel earrings using copper beads. 

Enamel is a simple and very effective way to add colour to metal. You will also learn to make a pair of earrings using your own beads.

You will learn how to set up a torch firing station that is simple and inexpensive. Bringing together equipment from hardware stores you can set up your own enamelling station.

The torch firing technique allows you to add and layer vibrant enamel colours and is suitable for all skill levels.

Students learn how to read enamel, to understand the different stages of enamelling and to create their own individual pieces.

If time allows there will also be a demonstration on how to enamel onto a flat surface using a tripod.

MEET YOUR TUTOR

Linda Blair studied Jewellery and Object design and Jewellery Manufacture at the Design Centre Enmore. Linda works with enamel and currently is creating pieces that replicate gems and gem set jewellery, replacing the stones with enamel. Many of these pieces are based on historic jewellery from the 16th to the 20th century. She is also interested in the addition of colour, line and texture to her work. Linda creates one off pieces, with no two pieces being the same.
