Now Roots
A jewellery course by Ruudt Peters.

After the successes of the last 12 years, this year Ruudt Peters is beginning his summer workshop under the title NOW ROOTS. Peters has been connected as 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 At the moment he is professor at Alchimia 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. The workshop is being held in the countryside of the southern Netherlands.

Theme: NOW ROOTS, Peters has been teaching all over the world and see that the globalization makes everything blurry. Peters believes that there is a difference between making art in China or Germany. Even in Europe offers every country other works. The cultural identity of the maker and the place where the work has been made are strong influences on art. NOW ROOTS is a workshop where we will discover and explore the identity of the maker. We will tune you on your personal roots. Guide you on the way to get deeper into your own language. 

When we operate from the depth of our roots we generate strength and energy that leads to your form language. It is essential for an artist to draw from this inner force. Together we will search for your personal roots. This means that you will get in contact with yourself, and learn to focus on your personal roots, freedom and drive. We will guide you to your basic experience, teach you to formulate your own positions, and support you in translating this into making art and fine art jewellery. NOW ROOTS is about taking another space at our contemporary 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 not only rational reflection, but also the subconscious enters into the work process. Ultimately, fine art jewellery remains a frame of reference.

The NOW ROOTS course is built on step-by-step education in which the 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. During the course the group will cook together, and there will be group discussions.
