Covid Update

On Tuesday 29 March, the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Sajid Javid, set out the next steps for living with COVID-19 in England from Friday 1 April.

Updated guidance advises:

  • Adults with the symptoms of a respiratory infection, and who have a high temperature or feel unwell, should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people until they feel well enough to resume normal activities and no longer have a high temperature.
  • Children and young people who are unwell and have a high temperature should stay at home and avoid contact with other people. They can return to college when they no longer have a high temperature, and are well enough to attend.
  • Adults with a positive COVID-19 test result should try to stay at home and avoid contact with other people for 5 days, which is when they are most infectious. For children and young people aged 18 and under, the advice is 3 days.

For education and childcare settings from Friday 1 April:

  • Regular asymptomatic testing is no longer recommended in any education or childcare setting, including in SEND, alternative provision and children’s social care settings. Therefore, we will no longer be able to order test kits .

Summary

The enamelling course at Bristol School of Art 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 supported and encouraged to plan and realise individual outcomes. Enamel is simply glass fused to metal. It has been valued for centuries due to its resistance to light and chemical damage, glossy surface and the intensity of its colours. Artists and craftspeople continue to use traditional techniques unique to enamel in order to create works that fulfil their requirements, whilst others explore a variety of surface finishes, textures and methods of application that are not usually associated with the medium.

The intention of this Enamelling course, is to create a critical and supportive environment that will enable all those taking part to discuss and resolve technical issues and to successfully realise concepts. Studio time will be practice based but will include regular peer group reviews of relevant work in any medium.

The enamelling studio is well equipped, with 4 electric kilns, a variety of different enamels, suitable protective equipment, facilities for cutting and texturing metal and torch firing etc. Workshop facilities, including a guillotine and pillar drill, are also available during class times.

How will I learn?

Matt Benton is an experienced artist and jeweller who has always been fascinated by the medium of enamel and its diverse applications. While 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 19 years and continues to promote the use of the medium by creative practitioners. Matt will guide and support you throughout the course.

The Enamelling course is based at Bristol school of Art, Queens road campus, SGS College, Bristol. You can get a variety of buses to Clifton Triangle including 1, 3, 72 and 505. It 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 and ideas and to successfully realise 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.
