Introduction to Liquid and Vitreous Enamels with Claire Townsend

Claire Townsend is a local WA jeweller living in the Perth Hills. She has a Masters Degree and has taught at Curtin University, TAFE, Contemporary Metal and privately over the past 20 years

Claire has exhibited extensively throughout Australia, and sells her work from a range of galleries. 

She is facilitating a two day Enamelling workshop on Sunday the 21 and 28 October. Each day commences at 10am and finishes at 4pm.

This workshop will introduce you different ways of using enamels to create new and contemporary surfaces. Students will be able to make many sample pieces, and a finished pendant over the two -day workshop.

Day one will include sifting, painting, mark making, using stencils along with surface and enamel preparation.

Day two will cover stoning back, stamps and completion of a pendant.

We will be using liquid enamels and a small range of powdered vitreous enamel.

The workshop will cover a basic introduction to surface preparation, preparation of enamels, firing times and temperatures. No former experience is necessary, but if you have done some enamelling previously  you will learn something new!
