Explore the specific nature of thin sheeting and obtain the maximum stiffness from the minimum weight.
You will be working and researching first of all with paper, and then moving on to metal. Embossment, corrugation, folds, flaps, edging, creasing, enveloping and perforation will be demonstrated during the course. Interlocking connections are fundamental to the formal progression or inner logic in sheet work:  Point to line, to area, to space.  

Participants: maximum 8 person.
Subscription: up to one week before the workshop begins.
Course languages: German, English.

You will receive detailed information before the workshop begins. Modifications reserved.

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.
