MASTERCLASS with Felieke van der Leest
Dutch jewellery and object artist Felieke van der Leest expresses in her work the special affection that she has for animals. She combines techniques used in textile work with valuable metals and plastic toy animals. This 1-day workshop will look at transforming a found object, or objects, into a piece of jewellery. You’ll be introduced to simple tools and domestic textile techniques such as knitting and crochet
MASTERCLASS with Zoe Robertson
Jewellery artist Zoe Robertson is interested in the relationship between the object, the body and space. Her jewellery is theatrical in scale and often responds to kinaesthetic sensations of tactility, sensuality and physicality. Join Zoe in this 1-day masterclass to challenge the boundaries of jewellery and experiment with a breadth of unconventional materials, seeking out your own visual language and developing new design ideas.
