In partnership with the Pinned exhibition promoted by the Association for Contemporary Jewellery Nothern Ireland (ACJSNI) that will happen from 2 November to 2 January, Craft NI is delighted to welcome interdisciplinary artist Rachael Colley on a virtual visit to Belfast for a 1-hour webinar, in which we look forward to hearing how Rachael combines historical and social research with CAD design and 3D printing while working in experimental materials to produce highly distinctive works that explore body boundaries and challenge definitions.

About Rachael Colley
Rachael’s practice combines jewellery, objects, and sculpture. Her prevailing themes around food and consumption have been drawn together to create experiential dining events that encourage people to handle and use the pieces. Rachael is a senior lecturer in jewellery and metalwork at Sheffield Hallam University, and her award-winning work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally.

About Pinned Exhibition
An exhibition by the Association for Contemporary Jewellery and Silversmiths N.I.
A unique selection of work by local jewellery collective the Association of Contemporary Jewellery & Silversmiths NI will be on show in the Craft NI Gallery during November and December 2020. For this exhibition participants were challenged to create a wearable piece of jewellery in response to the theme ‘Pinned’, to show technical accomplishment, innovation and to go beyond usual production work.

Alongside the exhibition photographs of the work by Simon Mills will be shown online (Instagram / IGTV). In line with our aims to broaden our reach, ACJSNI will provide a virtual tour of the exhibition and maker podcasts giving behind the scenes insights into different approaches to the creative process.

The Association for Contemporary Jewellery & Silversmiths NI is a regional branch of the Association for Contemporary Jewellery. Their aims are to advance public education by promoting understanding of contemporary jewellery, to foster communication between practitioners and interested others, and to represent ACJ members within the region of Northern Ireland.
