Enameling is one of the world’s oldest technologies. Its brilliant colour and durability make it a favorable technique to add color and pattern to your jewelry and objects.
This enamel workshop is aimed at anyone interested in working with enamel, as a way of adding colour and texture to copper. It can be used painted, dripped, sgraffito, layered and ground back, textured and more.
