What a treat! Immerse yourself in a full day of creativity, trying enamelling and mosaic.

I am collaborating with the lovely Katie Sanderson, a local enamel artist and teacher, to bring you a unique and exciting all-day workshop experience, where you can try your hand at two crafts in one day.

You will get three hours with each of us and will be able to make two stunning pieces to take home. 

With Katie you will be creating kiln fired enamel jewellery and or pictures.

You will learn how to:

* apply the enamel to copper by sieving, wet packing, stencilling and adding decoration 

* how to to fire your own work (everything is fired and finished on the same day)

* how to file polish and present your pieces either to leave wearing that day or take home and mount.

This is an introduction to enamelling and requires no previous experience. You will be able to choose up to 3 pieces to create these may be pendants, earrings, brooches, or small pictures. Katie has lots of copper shapes to choose from and a huge array of enamel colours to play with!

 

Then with me you will create a mosaic for indoor display using the direct method. You will learn how to:

* plan a design

* shape your tiles

* glue your tiles

* grout your finished piece

You can choose from any of my 20cm shapes, including birds, hearts, foxes, flower pot or a circle.

We won’t get time to grout as the glue will still be wet, but a demo will be given and you’ll be given enough grout to finish your piece at home.

No experience necessary, suitable for beginners. 

 (Shapes measure approximately 20cm)
