This four-week class Monday evening class beginning the 8th of August, is an introduction to the complex and beautiful techniques of Cloisonné and Champlevé enamel.
With its origins in Ancient Egypt and Mesopotamia, the ancient craft process of fusing glass to metal is said to have travelled from Southeast Europe to China via the Silk Road, and eventually to Japan.
Using transparent Japanese enamels, students will learn metal preparation of copper and silver, and wire application on a flat and a 3-dimensional surface. They will be shown enamel preparation, wet laying, kiln firing, and a variety of finishing techniques and finding options.
The cost includes all materials except silver, which can be purchased, as you require.
The class is now full, but please email us to register your interest if you would like notification of later dates at email@example.com.
