Learn to enamel with enamel workshop’s online classes

Because we believe that you you should be able to freely employ your skills and create work that is truly yours, Enamel Workshop offers knowledge-based classes.

You will not be technically or stylistically tied, but instead will be able to develop your own style. Our classes are downloadable videos and handouts, which you then own forever and have right to re-download if lost. This is the modern day’s equivalent of buying a DVD that you can peruse and consult at any time 

Students are also encouraged to join a private Facebook classroom group in which projects and techniques can be discussed with instructors and other students.

And because project-based videos are also fun, Mer offers a subscription service though Patreon, in which all questions are heard & learning content is created after listening to Patron’s requests. This Patronage also contributes to keep Enamel Workshop’s project up and running, and improving day per day.

I studied artistic vitreous enamel over metals at the Llotja school in Barcelona, beginning in the early 90’s under mentorship of the legendary Andreu Vilasís and Núria López-Ribalta. Barcelona is my hometown, a great place for an artist to be born and an inspiration for me growing up. My greatest muse, however, is always nature.

After graduation I worked for Bagués Masriera (a must see if you visit Barcelona), until I moved to Belgium in 2005. Now I work in my personal studio.

Enamel is my greatest love, but I am also interested in many other materials and I love to combine disciplines. My website is innershelter.net and I created enamelworkshop.com in 2019.

In this class I show you how to complete 8 exercises that will bring your wet-packing and gradation abilities to the next level. This class is a must! Suitable for complete beginners, this 4 hour class is packed with information useful for all levels of proficiency
