Liquid Enamel Two - Intermediate Workshop
(+1 more date)
Return to SquarePeg to work with Linda in this one day hands on workshop.
Over the course of the day you get to progress the skills you will have learned in our Liquid Enamel One Beginners workshop.
Come and spend the day advancing your projects with a tutor by your side to assist you.
The Liquid Enamel Two workshop is aimed at anyone who has been working at home on their Liquid Enamel practice, or perhaps haven't been able to - as you don't have a kiln.
Either way, this class is the perfect next step to learn new tips and tricks to add to your enamelling skill set.
Your tutor, Linda Blair is a recognised exhibiting contemporary jeweller who has used liquid enamel extensively in her practice for a decade. Linda is a generous and knowledgeable instructor.
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.
