Intro
Embossing, pressing and guilloché engraving – these techniques employed in traditional manufactory-style jewellery production are learned, practised and cultivated within the context of the Pforzheim Revisited project. 
Supported by a scholarship sponsored by the C. HAFNER company, the alumni of the Jewellery Design course at Pforzheim University explore insights gained, and enhance their knowledge of and skills in these as well as other traditional techniques. During a stint of three or six intensive months at the German Museum of Technology in Berlin, the participants in the scholarship programme re-interpret valuable traditions, place them in unusual contexts and apply them using different materials and techniques, creating contemporary jewellery and objects, and contributing to further reviving and dynamically preserving these manufactory-style jewellery production techniques. The exhibition will be showcasing the works created over the past twelve years by participants in the programme.


Pforzheim Revisited is a collaboration between the Jewellery Design course at Pforzheim University, the Technical Museum of Pforzheim’s Jewellery and Watchmaking Industries, and the German Museum of Technology Foundation. It is supported significantly by the C. HAFNER company, and is part of the Manufactory-style jewellery production and design project, which was included by the German Commission for UNESCO in the Register of Good Safeguarding Practices for Intangible Cultural Heritage in 2015.


Admission is included in the ticket for the permanent exhibition.
