Due to COVID-19, this workshop has been postponed. We will update this page with the final dates and further information.

Jewelry has nowadays become a discipline where the development of concepts and material research are taking a very solid position. This fact plays an important role at the moment in which we transfer our design interests This course aims to stimulate the mind; take advantage of the potential of group thinking and facilitate the terrain for new possibilities within practical experimentation.
We will deepen your creative process to consider new ways of approaching traditional materials normally associated with jewelry, developing interdisciplinary models and exercises that can be used both in jewelry design and in other practices.
In this course, the limits are extended when designing and obtaining an evolutionary process to help us in the future and continue our individual creative phase, with the aim of covering a more critical discourse. Space, material and background will be taken as the starting point of this course, exploring new perspectives and making a difference within the scenario of the current Design.
