I am very excited to announce a Special Two Day Enamelling workshop with Guest Tutor Tilly Wilkinson here in my studio in Glaisdale. Tilly was formerly an Art and Design teacher but has now been enamelling for quite a number of years. She is a Craftsman of the Guild of Enamellers,
regional representative for the Guild for the Northwest of England and North Wales and the Guild’s Chairman for 2011-12. She works work mainly on copper and silver and design and makes all of her own pieces.
Images into enamel with Tilly Wilkinson
Enamelling on copper and steel using riso screens. Learn how to make your own silk screens to produce a range of images, either from existing illustrations/ photographs or from your own drawings. Produce colourful and beautiful wall panels from these images on either copper or steel. Suitable for those who are new to enamelling or those with some enamelling experience. A range of ready made screens will also be available for you to use. There will be a charge for copper and steel used during the course. The maximum size of copper or steel will be 100mm x 100mm, smaller pieces will be available. Riso screen material will be charged at £3.50 per A4 sheet.
Enamels and equipment are included in the course fee.
