I am excited to have my very first enamel student this week. I have been planning the course outline and content for a very long time now and to finally have come into fruition is very exciting.
|... copper cogs and wheels|
Aside from learning to flame enamel copper blanks, the workshop will also cover the following:
- safety and good health practices in the studio
- making your own forged copper headpins and ear wires
- making enameled headpins
- using tools and equipment to shape and bend copper
- learning to flame enamel beads, wire and blanks
- exploring design concepts to create your own jewellery pieces.
I am slowing getting my mojo back and easing myself into the studio groove again after a long illness. Packing and posting off orders, attending to commissions and tidying up the studio are all on my agenda this week. In the mean time, have a fabulous week - cheers, Liz x
