Our Christmas lecture – The Art of Enamelling on Thursday 15th December – promises to be a glitzy affair with Dr Sally Hoban telling us the story of enamelling; the ancient art of fusing powdered glass with metal to make exquisite jewellery and metalware that spans continents and ages. But what unites these miniature masterpieces are their status as exquisite works of art.

This lecture examines the materials, techniques and history of enamelling in the decorative arts from Ancient Egypt to the present day, including jewellery and metalwork. There is a particular focus on enamelling in the Arts and Crafts Movement and Art Nouveau.
