I have been out and about again. This time to the Enamel for Public Art Professional Development short course, at West Dean College, Chichester.
The 5 day event was taught by Elizabeth Turrell, and included a day at the A. J. Wells Enamel factory on the Isle of Wight.
West Dean College is a stunning place to learn. The gardens and building itslf are worth a visit, and happily we had some lovely weather to enjoy in between enamelling.
The visit to A J Wells was inspiring. The opportunity to work on a larger scale again was really useful and has set me off wanting to do more work in a bigger format. The other great thing about having the chance to join a course is being able to get to know other designers and see enamel from different view points.

My fellow students were printmaker/enameller Sue Brown, stained glass artist Rowan MaOnegal and contemporary fine artist Stig Evans, who produced some fabulous examples of contemporary enamel work.
Alongside discussing methods, swapping thoughts and information, the many examples of sample techniques demonstrated by Elizabeth provided a very motivating week.
