Workshop in The Lab, Shanghai
The workshop I did with jewelry students of Tongji University ended last week. We had a good time together, and I really enjoyed working with them. The last two weeks were very interesting. The students worked on their models in the jewelry lab. All designs were different, each was a unique piece. Seeing the students’ enthusiasm and their curiosity to learn new techniques was a great pleasure for me. Even though some tools were missing in the lab, we were able to work on basic jewelry-making techniques such as bending, sawing and soldering. Most of the students did this for the first time, and some of them even worked on their projects in their free time. They put a lot of effort into their work, they experimented with different ways of working and they got a good idea of what it means to produce jewelry by hand.
As everywhere else, time in Shanghai flies too fast, especially when life is exciting. I hope there will be more such workshops in the future! I hope it for myself, but I also hope it for design students, because getting to know materials and techniques by exploring them personally opens up great opportunities. I started my career with an apprenticeship as a silversmith, and the knowledge I gained back then is still the basis of my work today – even though I am currently more involved in designing than in handcrafting.
