Intro
In this workshop we show our true face. In FACE NOW we hide nothing. We have to face what we are, and what we are making. FACE NOW is a workshop where we will discover and explore the face of the maker, and what the maker faces. We will fine tune and connect with your ‘Face’, guide you on the way to delve deeper into your own visual language and see yourself better.
Face Now
A jewellery course by Ruudt Peters assited by Estela Sàez

After the successes of the last 13 years, this year Ruudt Peters is beginning his summer workshop under the title FACE NOW. Peters has been professor at two of the most prestigious universities in Europe, the Gerrit Rietveld Academie in Amsterdam 1990-2000 and Konstfack University of Arts and Crafts in Stockholm 2004-2009. Since 2009 he has held the position of professor at Alchimia Contemporary Jewellery School in Florence. Through his Summer School he follows up his teaching with a private program intended for students or graduates of art academies, and artists/designers who seek to deepen their work. Every year an international group of artists/jewellery makers participate in his workshops. This workshop is held in the countryside in the south of the Netherlands.

Theme: FACE NOW. With our face we communicate with the outside world. Our facial expression shows a range of signals, which are translated and understood by others. Body language, codes and symbolism herein are essential. Our face is a mirror of the soul, our expressions make hiding our true selves difficult. In addition, time changes everyone's face from young to old, our age determines how we look globally. Time leaves its traces, and gives character to a person and his/her face. In this workshop FACE NOW we show our true face. In FACE NOW we hide nothing. We have to face what we are, and what we are making. FACE NOW is a workshop where we will discover and explore the face of the maker, and what the maker faces. We will fine tune and connect with your ‘Face’, guide you on the way to delve deeper into your own visual language and see yourself better.

When we operate from the depth of our own being we generate strength and energy, this leads us to form our own language. It is essential for an artist to draw from this inner force. Together we will search for your ‘Face’. This means that you will get in contact with yourself. We will guide you through your primary experience, teach you to formulate your own positions, and support you in translating this into making fine art and art jewellery. FACE NOW is about taking another approach at our experience of making, a statement about how you can relate to your own inner force. Artists and students are stimulated to produce work around this idea. By doing so, it is important that there is not only rational reflection, but also allowing the subconscious to enter into the work process. Ultimately, fine art jewellery remains the frame of reference.

The FACE NOW course is built on a step-by-step process of education in which an end product is not the most important goal. “The goal is the means and the means is the goal” (M. Gandhi). The emphasis lies on personal guidance and development. The participants are given the tools with which to continue this process on their own. By means of direct action people learn to take steps.-2016-2016
