Discover the magic of art jewelry through three innovative workshops, at the B&E Goulandris Foundation. We will be introduced to different versatile techniques used in handmade jewelry, expressing ourselves creatively while at the same time acquiring valuable knowledge concerning contemporary art jewelry.

Silversmithing is an ancient art and its roots can be traced throughout the history of humanity. Using metal and wire as our main material, we will learn different techniques, which we will then put to pracice to materialise our own ideas. Drawing inspiration from the Collection of the B&E Goulandris Foundation, we will make our own jewelry (rings, pendants or earrings) from copper or bronze, we will forge the surface and we will brush it with sandpaper.

The three-workshop cycle includes:

- Theory and presentation of the jewelry techniques used by silversmiths and goldsmiths

- Design and implementation of a pre-selected design, inspired by the B&E Goulandris Foundation Collection

- Introduction to metals such as copper and bronze

- Introduction to silversmithing

- Making our own piece of jewelry

We provide all necessary tools and materials. High risk tools and techniques will not be used in the premises, nonetheless this does not hinder creativity. Through these three workshops we will teach you how to successfully make your own jewelry!
