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 Emily Higham

Winner of the 2017 GOE Bursary Award is Emily Higham, who graduated from Edinburgh College of Art with a BA (Hons) Jewellery and Silversmithing. Emily was introduced to enamelling in the 2nd year of her degree programme and experimented with a variety of techniques before being drawn to the sgraffito technique. Her submission portrayed the beautiful colours and the aesthetical, fragile and organic quality beehives and honeycomb hold, whilst still resembling the structural shapes found within hives. The gradual build-up of powdered and liquid enamels on formed silver and sgraffito mark making allowed Emily to develop and translate her initial drawings into the Hive collection. The Bursary Award will allow Emily to build on her enamelling and jewellery making skills whilst setting up her studio and further developing the hive theme.
