Other options

You can include learning to add gold to this class using the Keum Boo process. There will be an additional cost of £5 for the 24k gold foil used in this process. You will need to bring fine silver samples of your own if you want to learn Keum Boo, no fine silver pieces will be made on this class. If you want to focus on adding gold to metal clay pieces using gold paste and Keum Boo, book a private class with Julia.

We also offer a two day adding colour to metal private class with Julia to explore even more colouring techniques including torch fired enamel. The two day class offers the most comprehensive experience of colouring techniques for metal.

    It has been my dream to come to Cornwall, since I first saw the beautiful landscapes in movies. Than, one day about 9 years ago, looking for specific jewelry classes, I found Julia Rai, oh my, since then, I tried to create opportunities to come and take a PMC class here. Well, never happened, but than my sister invited me to come on this trip and voila, I checked on courses and guess what? She also teaches enameling on silver, that I’ve had interest on since 2011. Yaaaayyyyy, I did it! I only regret not signing up for a 3 days private class. Who knows, maybe next time. Thank you Julia, I had a wonderful time and learned so much. What a treat to combine my dream of visiting Cornwall and learning how to enamel. I will cherish forever! Nilma from Hawaii

    Julia is very easy to talk to. This is a great course, learnt a lot and am now ready to go it alone. I loved seeing everything I created.
