Bearwood playgroup mum and PHD student at Birmingham City University School of Jewellery, Sian Hindle, is holding her Strange Pleasures creative workshop next Friday evening, 23rd May, between 6.45-9.30pm at St Germain’s Church Hall on Portland Road.
No don’t worry it’s nothing kinky Sian’s project is to explore how wearing contemporary jewellery makes women feel. Sian explained that “contemporary jewellery is a form of adornment that is often very different from the jewellery we wear everyday. It can express a range of ideas and concepts, is sometimes worn on unexpected parts of the body and is frequently made out of unusual materials.”
If you agree to take part in the project, you will have the opportunity to select and try on a range of pieces of contemporary jewellery.
You will be asked to reflect on how you feel about wearing it, and to capture your thoughts and ideas using photography and a drawing activity. Don’t worry, no drawing skills are expected – just the willingness to consider how wearing the pieces makes you feel.
Drawing, photography and cake (yes please!) are promised so if you are interested , please contact Sian Hindle (firstname.lastname@example.org or 07814 735011) for more details and to book your place.
Places are free but limited and booking is essential.
