Colourful Composition Enamel Jewellery Workshop
Saturday 4 August

£65.00

Time: 10am - 4pm

Location: The Biscuit Factory Gallery

Hosted by: Rachel Butlin

 

About

In this workshop you will learn the process of enamelling, from application to firing, to create a range of colourful pieces on copper. You will translate these samples using stitch, pegging and riveting techniques into either a pair of earrings or a pendant, incorporating beautiful tactile materials.
If you wish to use silver this will be an additional £15 on the day payable directly to the artist.

Due to the nature of the processes, materials and equipment used, the workshop is suitable for anyone over the age of sixteen, from beginners, to makers looking to expand their processes.

Rachel Butlin

Rachel Butlin studied at Nottingham Trent University, gaining an First Class Hons Degree in Decorative Arts - specialising in Metalwork, along with other mixed media processes. 

Rachel seeks to challenge the concepts of contemporary interactive and wearable jewellery producing a range of high end, mixed material wearable pieces. She loves to challenge the way in which people perceive a piece, by creating small scale sculpture that can be worn on the body, in a way chosen by the wearer. Carefully considering material combination and placement, her work often explores bespoke materials, evoking curiosity between the piece and the wearer themselves.

Her current jewellery collection is currently on show within our design | innovate | craft exhibition, showing now until 26 August.
