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.
