Locating the Precious

August 25th – August 31st 2019

The Workshop

This workshop asks: how can we recognise and communicate preciousness?

Preciousness is a distinctive attribute of jewellery. As a concept that surrounds its form, function, and materials, it features significantly in the practice of making meaningful objects.

By responding to the immediate environment and using readily available materials, we want to freely explore ideas concerning preciousness and where that might be located.

The desired outcome is the development of many creative proposals and strategies that address “the precious” in terms of context and materiality.

Through this process of conceptual exercises and individual creative practice we'll lay a notional foundation on which a framework of ideas is built and surprising material outcomes are constructed.
