A dialogue with enamel – exploring process with Jane Short

Ref: 5D7264




Focus on the techniques of champlevé, basse taille and cloisonné on silver, and explore ways of mixing, layering and juxtaposing colour. Aimed at enamellers with experience who wish to extend their current practice, you can choose to make a small silver and enamel dish using etching, hammering and stamping to add texture and detail.
