Are you ready to embark on a vibrant and colourful journey through the art of enamelling? We're delighted to invite you to join our comprehensive 12-hour Jewellery Enamelling Course, taught by industry veteran Shuyu Wu.
In this course, you'll get hands-on experience with both traditional and contemporary enamelling techniques. Starting off with creating colour samples, we'll walk you through two fundamental techniques - dry sifting and wet packing - setting a strong foundation for your enamelling journey.
Participants will then learn essential skills like counter enameling, under firing, and over firing. Building on the foundation established during the sample-making phase, the course will cover six major techniques/topics: sgraffito, stenciling, clear flux, silver/gold foil application, enamel decals, and pencil drawing - each of which will be introduced and practiced in depth (as illustrated by the three images below).
Upon completion of the course, participants will have produced a minimum of 11 unique enamel images and a pair of enamel earrings. With the knowledge gained, attendees will be empowered to design and craft colorful jewelry pieces using premade metal bases.
Furthermore, the course encourages the integration of techniques learned in Metalsmithing or New Metals, enabling participants to create even more intricate and sophisticated piece (as seen in the five images below).
