Enamel Surfaces - Add & Subtract, Elizabeth Turrell


The workshop will encourage an innovative and personal approach. Using personal source material such as artists sketches, drawings, photographs, text and images, the participants will be guided through how to translate personal material into enamel.

Course content

Participants will focus on developing distinctive enamel surfaces through subsequent layering and firing until the required result is achieved. The process of building up layers between firing will be enhanced by the use of creative subtraction offering sensuous and sophisticated possibilities. Participants will develop sensitivity to surfaces and use subtraction to reveal subtle line, visual texture and the thinnest layers of enamel while creating a sensuous and tactile surface.

Ideal for

The workshop is suited to experienced enamellists, jewellers and artists working in any media. The workshop will encourage an innovative and personal approach. 

More information


Each participant will create a series of enamelled samples exploring personal source material and surface development that will lead to a small panel, three-dimensional object or jewellery.
