We learnt how to use cloisonne wire to make cells that the enamel can be packed into, or just used as decorative lines in the colour.
Cloisonne is not exactly the enamelling technique I want to get in to, but it's good to know how it's done! I'm much more interested in champleve and basse taille, which I shall have to practice on my own.
It was great fun though, and I'm sad the course ended! It was nice to meet you Eileen, Bart, Ilona, Connie and Antonia!
Here are some of our results - not bad for a first try!
