An object which defies immediate identification and classification. 
Its meaning is concealed to us, the seekers, and we marvel at the mysterious article. A workshop on Science and Fiction, on perception, discovery and the search for truth (or reality?), where we consider and describe objects. We discover, collect, finish and fabricate incredibly strange things and narrate their story. 


Peter Bauhuis is an artist, goldsmith and author. He takes a mischievous delight in breaking with artisan tradition in his works, and challenges our habits of observation with a subtle humour. Although jewellery may appear to have a direct function, it remains embedded in conversation which determines its stance, its meaning and its function.

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: in Kreis 4 (near the Bäckeranlage park), on Tram 8 - practically a private tram - straight to the Klusplatz. on the 33 from the nearby Schaffhauserplatz, no changes, straight to the Klusplatz.
