In this introductory course, two types of glass enamel, transparent and opaque are used. Four groups of enamelling techniques are taught, dry application, wet charging, and painting. With these techniques we will make pendants or earrings employing the styles of stencilling, scraffito and grisaille. The decorative applications of foils, glass rods, and millefiori are shown so they can be incorporated into your artwork. It is helpful to have some previous jewellery making experience, but not necessary to create jewellery and small works of art.

under glazes and rods that will add another level of interest to your work. A discussion of how to create depth and working on a curved surface are included in this short course. Previous enamelling experience is required. Maximum of 4 students
