In the midsummer of 2019, National Tsing Hua University (NTHU) had the honor of hosting a visit by the renowned jewellery artist and goldsmith Professor Robert Baines, who was designated Living Treasure: Master of Australian Craft. During his visit, in addition to conducting the first phase of the eight-week workshop Precious Objects: Object and Association, he also delivered a four-part lecture series titled Robert Baines: Fifty Years a Goldsmith. During the lecture series, apart from providing some background on a few of his notable artworks, he shared his unique insight into the art of goldsmithing and jewellery making, as well as his creative theories.
