What you'll do

What is Enamelling?
“Enamelling is the process of applying thin layers of finely ground glass to metal. Which when heated to a high temperature (800-850 degree Celcius), the glass melts and fuses with the metal.”

It’s one of the three ancient fired arts besides Pottery & Glass and due to the materials involved, it’s perfect for Interiors & Exteriors. Enamel has an inherent sheen and strength to it, which just enhances its tactile quality.

This workshop will be an introduction to how through centuries artists have been fusing glass with metal and producing exquisite pieces of art.

You'll be working with Copper and learning how to mold it and apply powdered glass as paint to create your own jewelry. Each piece will be fired 2-3 times, giving the artwork its glass sheen and weatherproof quality.

Smriti will be guiding you throughout the session, working with each participant individually.
Other things to note

I (Smriti) was introduced to the world of various cultural and contemporary art forms from a very young age. Receiving training predominantly by my mother (Ritu Sangal) who inspired me towards an artistic endeavour. In 2008, I completed my BFA from Delhi University and pursued an MFA at Wimbledon College of Art, UAL, London finishing in 2014.

After returning to India I had one ambition - to develop my mother’s vision to highlight & extend the journey of Indian art mediums to every creative individual. Thus, establishing this vision under the official name of Culture Chauraha in 2014.

It was nice experience to learn jwellery making by this way. I never expected this much patience and time require for making a piece of jwellery. I would be happy by joining this workshop as i got the idea of making jwellery. Thanks Smirti, you taught me by your friendly nature.

If you want a chance to learn a traditional artform under the guidance of an extremely patient and talented artist, and create a one of a kind gift for someone in the process, I highly recommend this experience. Smriti is a really great, super encouraging teacher, and her studio is well appointed and comfortable. This was the highlight of my trip to Delhi.

Ritu was a patient, gracious and excellent teacher. I made things complicated for myself with some design choices, but she patiently helped me deal with all of the problems I created for myself. I really enjoyed getting to see some of her other projects and hear more about the teaching she does and the different media she works in. It was fun to see some of her enamel works and realize the amount of skill and artistry that goes in to the medium after my challenging first attempt at enameling. Thank you Smriti and Ritu for this experience!

Really cool experience to have while in New Delhi. Smriti was a very knowledgable artist and guided us well through the process of making the enamel jewellry. It was so fun that I wish I could take it up as a hobby back home. She serves you a lovely cup of tea as you work and helps you along the way so that you can make your concept come to life. You hang out in her awesome art studio with plenty of inspiration. Her mother was a delight in sharing stories. I highly recommend this class. You will love it.
