Enamelling is one of the world’s oldest technologies - its brilliant colour and durability make it a favourable technique to add colour to your jewellery and objects. We are thrilled that German based jewellery artist Danni Schwaag will be visiting our studio in September to offer a 4-day enamelling workshop. After training as a goldsmith Danni studied jewellery design in Idar-Oberstein from 2004-2008, spending an erasmus year at the Escola Massana, Barcelona in 2006. Since then Danni's preferred material has been enamel both as a stand-alone material and in combination with other materials such as ebony, mother of pearl, plastic and acrylic paint. Danni's work is represented in several international galleries. In 2013 she won the Bremen advancement award for applied art for her collection "l'art pour l'art" - an ironic view on the fine art scene.
This workshop is aimed at anyone interested in working with enamel as a way of adding colour and texture to copper, silver or gold. With a focus on an experimental approach, different techniques including powdering, painting and drawing with enamel will be shown in several steps. You will have the opportunity to explore all of these techniques, using both opaque and transparent enamels. No previous knowledge is required.
NOTE: This course meets for four consecutive days.
We will provide copper sheet for your samples or you are welcome to use your own precious metal.
Those with no previous experience or jewellery practitioners looking to add colour to their designs.
