Enamelling is a beautiful, many coloured and expressive art form that allows you to create work that can be used for jewellery or as miniature panels!

In this workshop you will explore and experiment with painting and drawing enamel techniques. It is designed to provide you with the opportunity to progress your skills and further investigate expressive forms of enamelling.

For the more experienced enamellers you will have a go at using foils and trying out some sugar fired surface techniques in this class.

^If you have done any of Barbara’s or other enamelling courses where you have done wet packing or sifting with enamels AND are competent in firing the enamels in a kiln, you should be able to join this class.
