Fabricate showcases work by 42 staff and students of the Central Saint Martins BA Jewellery Design course. For the fourth year running students and staff are delighted to be returning to Vitsœ in Munich to display their work as equals, in celebration of the course's diverse and lively approach to contemporary jewellery and objects. Mindful of the common threads between jewellery and furniture, this exhibition, presented on Vitsœ’s 606 Universal Shelving System, imaginatively and expressively explores the theme of fabrication.

In addition to the work in the exhibition, there will be a live event on the evening of Friday 15th March hosted by the Year 2 students. The students will transform themselves into mobile galleries by wearing their work to ignite conversation between maker, wearer and viewer. The work produced for this special project has been made in direct response to the sustainable fabrication methods used in the manufacture of Vitsœ furniture, following the students visit to the Vitsœ production building and headquarters in Royal Leamington Spa.

The BA Jewellery Design course is proud to promote an understanding of a wide variety of materials, approaches and contexts within the field of contemporary jewellery. Innovation, originality and individual identity are encouraged and developed, and we are also keen for students to recognise and investigate the cultural, social and ethical issues relevant to jewellery and its manufacture.

Some of the work in the exhibition has been made in response to curriculum projects in Years 1 and 2 and other pieces are entirely self-motivated.

Giles Last, Course Leader of BA Jewellery Design at Central Saint Martins comments:
This wonderful collaboration with Vitsœ and the marvellous setting, yet again gives the course an excellent opportunity to celebrate the breadth and range of the work of our staff and students, from a selection of graduate work to the first project the students encounter on the course and from staff research and new pieces to the second years live event.

Jennie Moncur, Creative Director at Vitsœ said: 
We are delighted to present this fresh body of work, together with the live event, in our Munich shop for a fourth consecutive year. It has been particularly exciting to experience the creativity of the second year students, who's live event has focused on working with materials from our production building in Royal Leamington Spa. As always the work on exhibition this year demand us to think, and challenge that thinking and does not fail to stimulate and surprise.
