I have been really lucky to spend a week enamelling at Ravstedhus in Denmark. This was organised by the Guild of Enamellers, mainly by Tom Lundsten and coordinated at the UK end by Jill Leventon. The workshop facilities are absolutely amazing. There is every tool I could dream of and some that I’ve no idea what they do. It’s been a great opportunity to experiment and I’ve played around with some ideas.
It has been great to make new friends; share ideas and discuss techniques and approaches. The workshop has been open until 10pm each day (the latest I’ve managed has been 9pm). We did have a trip to a museum just over the border in Germany on Wednesday afternoon.
I’m writing this in my room, we finish here and have a big clean up tomorrow I think. I will return home inspired and invigorated and probably a bit tired but what a wonderful experience this has been.
