Workshop Outline

This class will explore a range of alternative materials in jewellery led by student choices. Students will learn low-tech casting techniques, found object printing, working with stone and glass, reticulated silver and design and construction skills to create original, highly creative and wearable artworks that carry personal stories of the maker.

Rebecca Ward is a contemporary jeweller and artist based in Maleny where she works from her off-grid solar powered studio on Stoney Edge Nature Refuge. Her work is ‘material focused’ using a variety of natural materials and repurposed found objects to create jewellery and small objects. Rebecca exhibits widely and her work is housed in
the collection of the Art Gallery of South Australia. She collaborates on large-scaled public art sculpture projects with her artist partner, Russell Anderson. Rebecca enjoys devising and delivering art workshops for adults and children and is constantly inspired by the creative students she meets.
