What a dream start to the year; the Handshake 3 Jewelcamp. We got to hang out together (a treat in itself) for an extraordinary week of jewellery immersion, including a workshop with Sofia Björkman, Swedish jeweller and gallerist extraordinaire
(Sofia’s Platina gallery will be hosting our work in Stockholm later this year), followed by a Masterclass with Belgian jeweller and educator Hilde de Decker.
As an introduction to our practice we each delivered a 7 minute presentation (you can read mine here: 01-sarah-read-7-min-presentation-notes-really final Hint: To read the text, in Powerpoint, select View/Notes Page).
There followed four intense days of discourse, debate and experimentation.
For me the high point was also the most challenging; the series of hour-long crit sessions where we each had the luxury of Hilde’s and the group’s interrogation of our body of work to date and our plans for the upcoming exhibitions.
