INTRODUCTION TO ENAMELLING WORKSHOP
>> FRENCH ONLY
Children or adults groups
Workshop led by a craftman, just nearby the cavern.
- An initial segment is dedicated to depicting the professions connected to Volvic rock.
- A second segment involves a practical activity during which each participant is able to create his or her own enamelled lava.
Visitors discover the technique for “cloisonné” enamelling applied to a lava plaque first coated in a “slip”. The apprentice enamellers first make a pencil drawing on a plaque then apply coloured enamels to the rock. We also have models available for copying. Lastly, the plaque is baked at 980° C in order to fix the colours.
- School groups (from elementary to high school). Duration : 1:15. Lava slab : 10x10cm
