3 hours and 30 minutes

Paid event, bookings required
Age Suitability: 16 years +

Working with local artist and jewellery designer Zoe Tjanavaras, participants will develop their own lightweight contemporary necklace and earrings using brightly coloured laser cut designs. All pieces of laser cut wooden and acrylic jewellery will be pre-cut. The workshop will be hosted in the exhibition OLSEN ORMANDY: a creative force as inspiration. Participants will gain new skills and explore the world of functional design, jewellery, pattern, shape and colour.

A great class for newcomers to jewellery and accessories design or those that would like to try something different.
