This workshop intends to meet the participants’ specific requirements.
Each participant will have the chance to put into practice basic jewellery techniques such as: saw-piercing, filing, soldering, forging, polishing and finishing, wax modelling, etc... As well as learning or improving traditional jewellery techniques, each participant will be introduced and encouraged to work with a variety of unconventional materials (epoxy resin, plastic, paper, fabric...).
There will be also short talks/discussions on contemporary jewellers whose work is conceptual and participants will have the chance to work on concepts using whatever material they feel most appropriate.
This workshop is open to all those people who need to learn or improve their skills in jewellery design and making.
 

Arianna Pittini: Having travelled to England to study, I gained a Bachelor degree and a Master degree in jewellery design. Contemporary jewellery fascinates me. I enjoy investigating how non precious materials may be ascribed value when placed in the context of jewellery. My approach and practice is intuitive. I enjoy working with a variety of materials such as paper, iron, fabric, silver… I have taught Art and Design in England and I am lecturing in “ Jewellery Design” in Art Academy in Rome.

M.Cristina Bellucci: I've been working as a contemporary jeweller for 15 years. My initial approach was working with metals, then my interest shifted to unprecious materials and ordinary objects. I am interested in transforming the matter; what is ordinary holds the potential to be transformed into something special and beautiful. I design through making. In the last years I was fascinated by color so that it becames a sourse of inspiration.
