October 16th&17th: Jewellery Enamelling. Weekend workshop in Oakura.
Two-Day Enamelling Workshop. 9.30 - 4pm, Saturday and Sunday.
Enamel is a specialised kind of glass that is applied to metal (copper or silver) and then fired in a kiln. The workshop is suitable for beginners or those with some experience. We will make a number of pieces which can be made into ear rings, pendants or brooches, exploring the use of transparent enamel on fine silver and using cloisonne wires and fine silver or gold foils. Come and make some lovely, unique Christmas gifts!
A starter kit of materials is included in the price. Additional materials, chains, ear wires etc can be purchased from Sally if required.
This is a fun, info-packed class. Sally is a very experienced teacher who creates a relaxed creative experience. Limited numbers.
Accommodation may be possible on site on request.
