Dorothy Cockrell – (Enamelling)

Renowned enamel artist based in Edinburgh. Author of Beginner’s Guide to Enamelling. Gifted, highly-experienced Tutor

Dorothy brings an enormous amount of materials and equipment to her workshops so people are never short of what they need. Dorothy gets many people returning to her courses, but she is equally adept at catering for the specific needs of first-timers and those simply wishing to discover the art of enamelling. The beauty is, this can be something as small as a cuff link, right up to large pieces of art work and everything in between.

We try to spread out Dorothy’s courses alongside Pewterwork with Bonni MacIntosh and Enamel Beading with Janet Notman.
