Loughborough Jewels Workshops - Sat 23 Jan
Sat 23 January 2016, 11:00 – 15:00 GMT
Join jeweller and jewellery historian Roberta Bernabei in the creation of a new series of brooches as part of her Loughborough Jewels project. This participatory project seeks to share and preserve memories of the Market Town of Loughborough.
You will be asked to bring along an image, photograph or object that relates to your memories of Loughborough, and Roberta will take a record of your object and ask you to describe it and its significance to you and the town. This will form the basis for a brooch design, that Roberta will make and that you will be able to collect at the end of the project. To participate please book a session using the links above.
Each brooch will take its form from a window frame found in the town and will be completed with imagery and words given to Roberta by each of the participants. As the brooches are finished they will join part of a special exhibition installation. At the end of the exhibition all participants will be able to collect and keep their brooch.
The exhibition will be available for viewing at the following times:
Thursday 28 January 11am - 4pm
Friday 29 January 11am - 4pm
Saturday 30 January 10am - 1pm
Roberta will also be running a special workshop for children aged 5+ and their families. Click here to find out more. Please be aware that parents/guardians DO NOT need to book a ticket in order to attend this family workshop.
