Does jewellery need the body to exist? Do your need to wear it so that it can be called jewellery? When worn, how does it feel?
Objects that are worn are things that accompany us and become part of our habitus. Emotions take place in the body and leave lasting effects on the body. In this workshop, you discover fine-tune and connect with your body and the surrounding space. This workshop is about the expanded field of contemporary jewellery. We will dwell in the world of body-related objects, historical clothing, and other forms of decoration.

Place: LAB University of Applied Sciences, Fine Art department, Lappeenranta (FI).
Workshop participation 350 €.
For students and members of the Finnish Jewellery Art Association 200 €.
