Summary

This course is structured to allow enamellers the opportunity to develop their own practice within a group context. Students new to enamelling will be instructed in basic techniques and encouraged to begin to plan and realise personal outcomes. The intention is to create a critical and supportive environment that will enable all those taking part to discuss and resolve technical issues, ideas and the successful realisation of concepts. Studio time will be practice-based, but will include regular peer group reviews of relevant work in any media. Students will have access to a specialist studio with four kilns, and a range of enamel is provided. Extra costs may be incurred if students wish to use more costly materials. Costs can be negotiated with the tutor. Matt Benton is an experienced artist and jeweller who has always been fascinated by the medium of enamel and its diverse applications. Whilst a student at Bristol School of Art, he had the opportunity to explore the medium in depth. This led to his involvement in public art projects, national and international exhibition opportunities and the continuing use of enamel within his artwork. Matt has taught enamelling at Bristol School of Art for 14 years and continues to promote the use of the medium by creative practitioners.
