We will show you how enameling works, how to use enamel paints and then you will have a go at painting a mug yourself. When you finish your mug, we will fire it in a furnace so you can take it home with you straight away. Enameling is such a unique technique – powdered glass paint is applied on a metal base and fired at 800°C. We will show you everything you need to know and will be available to you throughout your whole stay. You do not need to bring anything, just yourself! This workshop is great for both groups or individuals, adults or children, team building or hen parties, birthday parties.
I've been working with enamel ever since I was a teenager. Over the years, I have managed to make living out of something I love - creating enamel mugs and jewellery and bringing this old technique to life. I wanted to share this technique with wider population so I started Smalterie (our enameling workshop). I most enjoy those little stories that return to us - e.g. a father from the USA in search for a mug with a dog because his son lost that exact mug and is refusing to drink from another…When I hear such stories I know that our products bring joy to others as well as me.
Paints, brush, enamel mug
We will stay in the workshop for the whole duration of the experience. That way you can settle down and enjoy the whole creative process. There is no time limit on how long you can stay - stay as long as it takes for you to paint a mug! The address is Karmelitská 28 - you can easily find us by putting "Smalterie workshop" into Google maps (here: http://bit.ly/smalteriemap). Our workshop is in the annex of Smaltum shop, in a little, cosy nook :)
