The Guild of Enamellers Student Bursary Scheme

The Guild of Enamellers

In 2009 the Guild of Enamellers celebrated it's 30th anniversary; it has established a flourishing membership and is a fine example of what can be achieved when like-minded people come together to promote their work and develop new ideas.

craft&design is proud to support the work of the Guild in co-sponsoring the Guild of Enamellers Student Bursary Scheme, which aims to help a young enameller as they start up in business and provides them with Guild Membership for one year, a place at the Guild's Annual Residential Weekend conference, and a comprehensive package of networking and development opportunities.

Work by Natasha Burns

Winner of the 2016 Bursary Award is Natasha Burns, a graduate of De Montfort University Leicester, where she successfully gained a BA Hons in Design Crafts. The Selectors for the Award said, "Natasha's submission, which consisted of 3D vessels and mixed media wall art, demonstrated a strong design element and considerable skills in metal forming, construction and piercing, enamelling and decorative techniques. The use of formed copper shim, a limited enamel colour palette and multiple firing and overfiring enabled her to capture the movement, textures and colour of water". The Bursary Award will allow Natasha to further refine and expand her enamelling skills whilst setting up her studio and introducing enamelling to future undergraduate students as part of her role as Artist in Residence at De Montfort University.
