Details

An opportunity to explore two different jewellery disciplines in one weekend; plus a few general jewellery making techniques to make your pieces into wearable art. Vitreous Enamelling is an ancient technique which works by fusing powdered glass to copper by firing in a small kiln, using both opaque and transparent glass you will create some beautiful and unique pieces. Silver clay is wondrous stuff, it enables you the flexibility of moulding clay into the shape and design you desire, whilst offering you the beauty of silver once fired, a real cheat for frustrated silversmiths. For beginners and those wishing to develop their skills further.
