The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Festival of Stuff: Morning - Enamelling Masterclass

Wednesday 03 July 2019 10:00am - 12:00pm

Booking opens at 8pm on Tuesday 28th May

*** Ticket bookings go live on Tuesday 28 May at 8pm. Due to the popularity of the workshops we can only allow two Festival of Stuff workshop bookings per person. ***

Explore the process of enamelling and its historical context with artist and metal worker, Helen Carnac. Helen will give a series of short demonstrations of the basic principles and methods of fusing vitreous enamel, also known as porcelain enamel, to metal. After this, participants will try the techniques themselves and create a small panel in the process, which will be fired on the spot to about 800 °C to produce a smooth, durable enamel coating. The word 'enamel' comes from the Latin vitreum, meaning "glassy".'

Helen Carnac is an artist, maker and curator who lives and works in London. Setting up her studio in the early 1990‘s, Helen develops projects using design methodologies that are rooted in an acute awareness of physical location, place and working practices.
