Intro
The Design Werkstatt is organizing summer workshops and Symposiums for Ornament-makers in the car free swiss mountain village of Braunwald in central Switzerland since 1988. The different workshops for beginners, advanced and professional jewelry makers during July and August have become well known as a place of learning, inspiration and communication. Participants come from all over Europe.
Jewellery can be more than an accessory. It can be a small but rich little piece of sculpture, which is closely connected to the body, to the bearer of the communication as a sign. The possibilities of expression trough form, colour and choice of material are diverse. Jewellery has moved away from many traditional disadvantages. Gold, silver and precious stones are no longer the only materials for making jewellery.

The Studio:
The Workshops take place in a spacious wooden two story building. The studios are well equipped for up to 12 participants with direct access to a terrace with a breathtaking panorama view of the surrounding mountain peaks and glaciers. Every week, always from Sunday to Friday during July and August, different workshops take place. The courses will be held by well known craftsmen and women.

From Zurich International Airport, there are excellent train Connections every hour. Travelling time to Braunwald: 2 hours. A funicular railway links the last village in the Valley to one of the most beautiful car free resorts in central Switzerland at a altitude of almost 4000 feet. In the free time, hiking, swimming in a clear lake at the foot of the ragged mountain and glacier scenery, mountain tours and cycling, even hang gliding and many other summer activities are possible.

Accommodation:
There are several Hotels with different rates starting at $30 at the Hotel Adrenalin. Up to $180 for a night in a first class Hotel both near the studio. A charming Guest Farm offers accomodation for only about $20 per night. (self catering). Lunch can be prepared within the group for about $5 a day.

More to see:

Using the comfortable system of public transport go and visit famous Museums for Art, Design and Crafts, studios of famous craftsmen in near Citys like Basel, Zürich Munich or Milan.

Susan Cross from Scotland describes a workshop in Switzerland:
I found the whole experience very refreshing and extremely challenging. To have the time and space to think about and develop work in such stimulating and of course very beautiful surroundings was such a fantastic opportunity. Alongside the workshop programme walks were organised, one of which included a memorable ride on a chairlift. I tried to approach this workshop with a open mind and to work intuitively. For three days the mountains withheld their secrets, shrouded in swirling mists with sudden revealing chinks. I could hear them; the waterfalls, the bells of the roaming cows, but could not see them. So as you can imagine, the morning when I woke to clear blue sky and glorious sunshine with breathtaking panoramic views of mountain peaks and glaciers was just so exciting! The workshops are fully equipped and well set out with excellent facilities. It is also possible to rent an independent workspace, which I would thoroughly recommend to those wishing to develop their work in a very special and unique location.
