Enamelling Workshop Atherton
February 25 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm AESTA$130
This class will teach the basics of enamelling jewellery.
I offer small intimate fun lessons for groups of up to 9 people. Come along on your own as a total beginner or bring some friends. You may choose from a wide selection of copper blanks to use as the base for the enamelling project.
The topics that I will cover are basic safety, how and why to clean your piece before starting out, why counter enamelling the back of your piece is important, how to dry sift enamel powder, how to wet pack, sgraffito techniques and how to layer colour to achieve unique pieces of jewellery
I will also show you how to set your piece so that you can proudly wear the items home and wait for compliments.
The course is 3 hours long and you will have enough time to complete a pair of earrings or 2 pendants.
All equipment and resources are provided; no need to bring anything extra. Please do not wear floaty clothing and please wear closed in shoes.
