KORU workshops have always been wonderful places to get fascinated, to learn and to meet people. International teachers have guided beginners and professionals alike through intensive workshop days.
I must be dreaming.

Stone is real and unreal at the same time; the impossibility of its formation is laid bare in front of us, explained through physics, and seen in the geology of the land. Yet its otherworldly textures and colours are suggestive and evocative of many things, prompting us to make sense of stone in our own individual worlds.

Participants will explore a moment of realization - somewhere between dreaming and waking - through making in a material that is notoriously slow, hard, and stubbornly unique. Join me on a small journey attempting to negotiate what and how we make catch up with the lightning speed of our thoughts.

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 €.
