Learning the Ancient Craft of Enamelling on Copper

Please arrive by 6pm on Monday. Course ends with lunch on Friday.*

*  If you would like a longer course you can also book on the day workshop taking place during the day on Monday. Please ring Ammerdown if you would like to discuss this option.

Enamelling was first introduced last year at Ammerdown by expert enameller and tutor Dilys Fisher, and we all fell in love with it! What total beginners succeeded in creating with Dilys’ help was simply astonishing. Here is what one of her ‘pupils’ wrote: “Dilys was such a wonderful tutor; her approach was that there were no mistakes - just new opportunities for learning! Once we had mastered the basics, Dilys helped us to achieve the work we wanted to do, even if the techniques were quite tricky at first for us beginners. I thoroughly enjoyed myself!”.

Sadly, it is also a bit of a dying art, as not many tutors have the experience or time to teach their craft. We are therefore very fortunate that Dilys welcomes beginners as well as improvers. In fact Dylis is at pains to re-assure beginners that they will be able to create, within a short space of time, pieces that will amaze them, whilst having tremendous fun.

Dilys has been enamelling for over twenty years and belongs to the Guild of Enamellers. To begin with she focused on jewellery and later extended into other three dimensional works such as leaf sculptures, wall plaques and masks. With new techniques still to try, she is keen to help others learn from what she has achieved so far. Examples of students work can be seen at www.rosymdesighn.com.

Places are limited to 8 in order to ensure that Dilys can give everyone proper attention, so early booking is advisable. All equipment will be provided.

* Cost: There will be an additional charge for material used during this residential course. It should be in the region of £30 but the final cost will depend on what each participant chooses to make.

N.B.  Dilys is repeating her introductory day workshop and residential course on 6 to 10 October.
