I had a wonderful time at the Liquid Enamel Workshop. I had very little knowledge or experience as the teacher led us through the basics and quickly into the hands-on. She was always there to guide and assist when needed. The best part was the encouragement to experiment with our own ideas. I enjoyed it so much I have decided to get my own setup. I wish I lived in Sydney so I could attend more workshops. I recommend this course and group to anyone interested in exploring jewellery making.

ABOUT THE COURSE

The Liquid Enamel Two workshop is aimed at anyone who has been working at home on their Liquid Enamel practice, or perhaps haven’t been able to – as you don’t have a kiln.

Either way, this class is the perfect next step to learn new tips and tricks to add to your enamelling skill set.

Your tutor, Linda Blair is a recognised exhibiting contemporary jeweller who has used liquid enamel extensively in her practice for a decade. Linda is a generous and knowledgeable instructor.

Thanks for the workshop - has totally changed my perspective on enamelling! Can't wait to do some more testing - and possibly buy my own kiln. The potential of this material is so exciting!

Our Tutors

Why choose a jewellery making course at SquarePeg Studios?

Our courses are taught by highly experienced and passionate teachers who are practising contemporary jewellers. This is the closest to an accredited course – without the assignments, stress and cost – that Sydney has to offer. Students not only gain the satisfaction of designing and hand-making their own piece of jewellery they also have the opportunity to get a behind the scenes look at a contemporary professional jewellery studio while learning great new skills in jewellery techniques and design.

Linda Blair

Linda Blair studied Jewellery and Object design and Jewellery Manufacture at the Design Centre Enmore. Linda works with enamel and currently is creating pieces that replicate gems and gem set jewellery, replacing the stones with enamel. Many of these pieces are based on historic jewellery from the 16th to the 20th century. She is also interested in the addition of colour, line and texture to her work. Linda creates one off pieces, with no two pieces being the same.
