INTERNATIONAL SUMMER ACADEMY
of gemstones & jewellery at Campus Idar-Oberstein
August 13 – 24, 2018
For the fourth time, the International Summer Academy organizes workshops for beginners and professionals at Campus Idar-Oberstein, Trier University of Applied Sciences.
Under the guidance of renowned artists, the participants will discover new techniques that can be implemented in their own artistic practice.
I will lead the seminar “Global identity and fusion design” from 13 – 17 August. We create contemporary jewellery by reflecting on your personal history and cultural identity – all materials and techniques are welcome. The workshop focuses on a creative crossover using multi-media. With a challenging conceptual design process, you will also gain knowledge of diverse technical means for transforming your ideas into stunning jewellery pieces.

The catalog has 48 pages,
texts in German and English,
with numerous color photos
You can order it for the price of
12 EUR plus shipping costs.
