Jewellery Taster: An introduction to Enamelling

Enamelling is an ancient art that is still used today to create beautiful jewellery. If you would like to create and design a piece of jewellery using this traditional technique, then this course is perfect for you. The course will allow you to express your creativity as enamelling enables you to experiment with shapes, patterns and colours to create a unique piece of jewellery.

This course is great for beginners but could also interest those who have had previous experience in jewellery making.

When will I start the course and how long will it take?

You will be shown a variety of Enamelling techniques, before going on to experiment with the vast array of colours. You can either use this as an experimental session or work towards making a pendant or brooch, to take away with you.
