This workshop will be given by our in-house jeweller Kate Moult, who designs and manufactures contemporary handmade jewellery, often incorporating leather and silver into much of her own work.

About

The workshop links in with our March 2016  jewellery exhibition, ‘Manifest‘, and our forthcoming exhibition L for Leather in June, showcasing leather work by a variety of artists curated by Kate.

During the workshop, you will be able to make your own copper and leather cuff/bracelet and create surface textures on copper plate.  You can bring along your own textures to experiment with (e.g. textured fabrics, paper or lace), and will mount your design onto a leather cuff. Techniques you will learn will include the use of  a rolling mill, riveting, and forming leather and metal.

Kate describes her jewellery as a modern interpretation of tribal adornment. ‘I take my inspiration from traditional art such as Celtic or Maori, but also capture the spirit of contemporary body art. My work is predominantly crafted in silver, but also incorporates leather and a range of semi precious stones to produce a striking contrast. I design to promote individuality, to make the wearer feel beautiful and to allow the unconventional to belong.’
