“Tradition and Beyond – Contemporary Cross-Over Jewellery”
I conducted an advanced training on contemporary design for jewellers in Kazakhstan in co-operation with the Goethe-Institut Almaty, the Union of Kazakh Artisans and the Cultural Dialogue Program,
The workshop focused on artistic concepts and techniques as a free creative process, including new and colourful materials such as acrylic glass and artificially coloured agate stones in combination with copper, brass, silver and/or wood.
It was a creative and technical challenge to all participants to leave well-known grounds. Their technical and creative skills as master jewellery makers enabled all participants to create exciting contemporary jewellery with a touch of Kazakh cultural heritage.
