You will be inspired by objects you have collected, are unfinished or that you would like to work with, investigating how these objects might be incorporated into a piece of wearable art. While undertaking the work, conversations around the significance of the objects will be an integral part of the process.
The class will focus on a variety of jewellery techniques. These will be demonstrated to enable students to complete a project during the workshop. These will include – but not be limited – to soldering, cutting, forming, roller impressing and creating connections and clasps, including solutions for brooches and necklaces. There will be a focus on planning and working with your hands to realise your own creative solutions.
