The project consists of eight courses that provide a technical and professional approach for those operating in the contemporary jewellery field. Courses will be held at the Museo del Bijou (Museum of Costume Jewellery) of Casalmaggiore in the province of Cremona. The project is promoted by the agc, the Italian Contemporary Jewellery Association (www.agc-it.org), the Museo del Bijou in Casalmaggiore (Cremona) www.museodelbijou.it and the Municipality of Casalmaggiore www.comune.casalmaggiore.cr.it.


The lessons will be held in July-August 2010. The courses provide both theoretical and practical skills lessons in a workshop environment. Seminars are focused on formal research and the refining of technical skills. Each lesson will deepen a specific subject. 



All the lessons will take place on the Museum's premises. Participants will be able to make use of the workshop and the equipment provided by the organization. There will be a maximum of six to eight participants for each course. Courses have been prepared for jewellers, teachers, and professionals in mind.
The total subscription amount includes the final exhibition and the catalogue. The catalogue images will be elaborated by the students of the photography course.

Participants must fill in the subscription form, make payment and send a receipt of payment and a copy of an identity document to the project manager Patrizia Bonati, Via Sicardo 12b - 26100 Cremona, Italy.
agc members will qualify for a 10% discount on the total cost.

At the end of the courses, in October 2010, an international round table will take place in Casalmaggiore, addressed to jewellery professionals.

For the occasion all works made by course participants will be displayed, as well as a pertinent object made by the lecturer of each course. There will also be an exhibition of works produced by agc members selected by a prominent figure within the world of contemporary gold craft and not associated with the agc. The exhibition will take place at the Museo del Bijou for the period of one month.

A documentary of the project will be made that will be available for view on the association’s website.

The objects created during the courses will be held at the disposition of the organization in order to prepare the catalogue and exhibition. At the end of the exhibition and no later than November 30, 2010, the objects will be returned to the participants by mail.

Each participant will receive a participation certificate at the end of the course.

Eight study grants will be awarded to students of Italian schools specialized in goldsmithing and contemporary jewellery. Winners will participate in the agc courses free of charge. Transportation, room and board are not included. Candidates are to be selected and presented by each school. Grants will be awarded by the agc based on the work and curriculum of each candidate. All decisions are final.
