Enamelling for Jewellers

Would you like to add a little colour and artistic flair to your work? If so then enamelling could be for you.

The process of enameling (the art of fusing glass particles to a metallic surface) has been around for over 2000 years where it was first used to add colour to gold. It has since been developed and now incredibly detailed glass artwork is often created on copper or silver and incorporated into jewellery or objets d'art .

New York enamellist Lanni Sidoti will be travelling to Malaysia to teach a once in a lifetime class right here at the Academy   You’ll start by learn the basics of fusing glass powders to metal to create unique and colourful jewellery using sifting and stencil techniques. Following on by delving into the incredibly detailed world of cloisonne, where tiny metal cells are created with wire and meticulously filled with fine glass powder to create detailed mosaic like images.

What do I need to bring?

Just yourselves and a little creativity! Sources of inspiration such as works of your favourite artist are always helpful with the enamelling design process, so feel free to bring those along.

Do I need to purchase any materials?

All materials for set projects and samples will be provided for work in both silver and copper, however if you do wish to work more with silver, you are welcome to bring along some of your own. We recommend 18 gauge fine silver sheet.

What do we do for lunch?

We will break for an hour at 1pm for lunch and there are plenty of places close by to enjoy. Alternatively we have a kitchen with cooking facilities that you are free to use.


Coming from out of town?

We have a few options in terms of accommodation.  Many students stay in Nadi Bangsar or The Establishment where you can get a whole new studio apartment to yourself, both are available on Airbnb and are a 5 minute grab ride from the studio (which costs about 5 Ringgit).  The other option is a serviced apartment called The Nomad which is bookable through Expedia etc, this is about 7 minutes walk to the studio.  All these options cost approximately USD 30 per night.  A firm favourite seems to be Nadi however because there’s a great selection of restaurants within 2 minutes walk as well as a decent coffee shop - most important!

In terms of food, eating out if you like Malaysian / Indian food is super cheap - one meal will probably cost less than USD 3. Food at the supermarket costs pretty much the same as US / UK / Australia,

It’s a pretty easy city to hang out in, most people speak English and transport via grab is super cheap.  And there’s plenty of sights to see at the weekend too.
