The aim of this workshop is to introduce participant’s to the knowledge and practice of using found natural materials within their practice with an emphasis on the field of contemporary art/autor jewellery.
St. Ann’s Park will be the starting point for the participants to explore, observe, experiment and test their creativity in the design of jewellery.
About Carlos Silva:
“My work begins with fragments and an inevitable urge to organize them, to group them back together. I’m attracted to the idea that fragments are traces of something that has been broken, that lost its integrity, but also raw material for building something new. The dialogue of the hands with the materials and the quest for making each fraction fit turns into something of a ritual. The shape of each new jewellery piece is driven by this process, towards the creation of a solid and (again) stable surface that carries the symbolic protection of this new configuration to the body”.
