Royal insignia (www.royalinsignia.com) are looking for an enamel artist to come to
Please note: if you wish to make direct payment, the bank sort code on the application form is incorrect.
Correct sort code is 40-20-02 (NOT 40-02-02)
For any members who haven't had their journal yet, here are details about Conference, the workshops and costs etc.
As some members may be away when the journal comes out, and some workshops book up very quickly, details of the workshops and conference cost will again be available here on the website from the same time as the journal should be received (Dec 28th).
It is hoped that the majority of applications will still be submitted by post accompanied by a cheque (or cheques) but we will also accept e-mail notification of workshop preferences and, if necessary, payment. This can be made by direct transfer (not paypal) to the Guild’s bank account after emailing for the necessary details.
To try and keep allocation as fair as possible and avoid timing discrepancies, we will not "open" for applications until 4th January and although workshop places will then be provisionally allocated, these will not be confirmed unless payment has been received and will not be held for more than 7 days. If by any chance a workshop is over-subscribed on the 4th Jan then a ballot will be held.
Region 4 has an exhibition, "All Fired Up" at Bilston Craft Gallery from 15.11.14 - 13.12.14
With work from eleven members in six display cases and on the walls, there are a variety of techniques on display on copper, silver and steel. The exhibition shows work from newer members of the group combined with pieces from more experienced enamellers including a founder member of the Guild. The gallery is open Tuesdays to Saturdays with details available from the link below. I am greatly indebted to those who have given up their energy and time in creating this exhibition (we have been waiting for a slot at the Gallery following a suggestion I made back about five years ago!) from those who typed labels to those who physically set it up and hope you will be able to visit.
