IMPORTANT NOTE:

If technically feasible you may bring your own work samples to work on.

Students can only enamel on their own jewellery pieces if they have been soldered with adequate amounts of hard solder

 

* Easy and medium solder will not hold up in the kiln, therefore it is always best to consult with the tutor beforehand regarding the suitability of your design for Enamelling during the course.

 

It is best to design and make a piece with enamelling in mind.
