PAINTING ON GLASS Several firings. Enamels and Silver Stain (Level Two)

Saturday 5 May - Sunday 6 May
10:00 am - 4:00 pm

This is a workshop for those who have attend my “one level painting on glass” course, or for those who have a basic knowledge about glass paint and you want to go deeper into multiple firing and use of enamels and silver stain.

We’ll produce several samples and we’ll develop during the two intensive days a couple of more elaborate pieces of glass paint.
We’ll manage to make 3 firings.
This last work will be fired overnight and can be collected the week after or you can arrange it to be posted to your home.

You are welcome to bring your own images to work, or you can choose between a variety of images from my design archive.

Porcelain in Jewellery Weekend course

Saturday 5 May - Sunday 6 May
10:30 am - 3:00 pm

This weekend workshop is suitable for both beginners and experienced jewellers who would like to try new material. You will learn about different clay techniques and how to make jewellery from porcelain in depth.

Porcelain pieces may appear fragile but actually fired porcelain is very hard material. On Mohs scale of hardness porcelain is 7 which is the hardness of most semiprecious stones as Quartz family (Amethyst, Citrine etc.) or Garnets. It is much harder than glass (glass is 5,5) or silver (2.5). Porcelain is fired on the temperature of 1240-1400C which makes it so durable and very well suited for jewellery.​

On first day I will be introducing various types of clay, how to work with clay, firings, various decorative techniques and colouring. You will think about the connections of clay and other materials and how their samples could relate to the body. This day we will make a lot of testing pieces which would be then fired overnight for you to inform your learning next day. On second day we will design and make your final jewellery pieces and learn to assembly the test pieces from Saturday.​

Your second day fired porcelain pieces will be available to pick up on following Monday or within 1 week.​
