Granulation and Fusing
Granulation is the technique of creating numerous tiny spheres of metal with which to decorate your jewellery. They are not soldered into place, but are instead “fused” with the surface and to each other a technique that will cause you endless joy (and sometimes frustration!) as you learn to master the technique and create your own granulated design.
Once perfected, the possibilities are endless.
This class works well in conjunction with enamelling, as fused pieces provide a perfect deep textured surface in which to inlay enamel. Granulation can also be used to create more decorative surrounds for bezels, and to add texture to an otherwise flat pendant.
It will take your skill and imagination to turn these pieces into stunning pieces of jewellery.
You will learn:
How to prepare your workspace
How to prepare the granules
Health and Safety when making granules
Positioning the granules on the main piece
Fusing the granules
Polishing and finishing your pieces.
As with all of our classes, all materials are included in the cost of the class as well as plenty of tea coffee and luxury biscuits! The classes are all run by expert tutors with years of professional experience who are friendly, knowledgeable and approachable. The size of the classes is kept small to allow plenty of one-on-one attention and the maximum number of students for this class is 8.
We take an hour break for lunch and there are plenty of local shops to get food from, or you can always bring a packed lunch to eat in the studio. If you have any questions regarding this, or other courses please don't hesitate to get in touch.
