I'm delighted to be able to present a snapshot of enamel techniques again at the Walker. I first worked with the gallery on a collection of video clips showing enamel methods which is now on touch screen viewing in the Craft and Design gallery. That initial project lead me to have the confidence to develop my guide to enamelling as a book for A&C Black, and so its a major privilege for me now to return again to the Walker to profile enamels in such a prominent way.
