Intro
Are you interested in the creative processes, in search of sustainable design methodologies in jewellery design?
The aim of this workshop is to engage in the absorbing process of creating artefacts of a minimum of 2000mm in length. The workshop begins with the concept of limitation and ends with 2000mm of joy, confidence in one’s own processes and the creative transformation of work into form.  

Teachers

Christoph Zellweger pursues an idea-oriented approach to design, distinguished above all by a fundamental curiosity for processes and materials. His experience as a goldsmith and jeweller flows unremittingly through his works. He was recently appointed head of the XS Jewellery BA degree course at Lucerne School of Art and Design and also holds a research professorship in England.

Above the city of Zurich
In 2014, the former atelier of sculptor Marianne Olsen, was transformed into a place where jewellery is discussed, analysed and created. The public goldsmiths’ studio features six well-equipped benches for independent work. In 2017, a series of workshops with outstanding tutors and artists will be held.

With Concentration and Quality
The workshops are aimed at goldsmiths, jewellery designers and creators, students and ambitious and interested people.

With Taste and Composure
While the workshop is underway, a homely, fresh meal will be prepared for you. Eating together is part of the process. Sometimes it’s a distraction, sometimes an in-depth study and sometimes simply pleasure.

Accommodation in Zürich
We’ll be delighted if you’re making your way here from out of town, and can recommend two excellent places to stay:
www.fuerdich.ch in Kreis 4 (near the Bäckeranlage park), on Tram 8 - practically a private tram - straight to the Klusplatz.
www.kafischnaps.ch on the 33 from the nearby Schaffhauserplatz, no changes, straight to the Klusplatz.
