My Kitchen Jewels....
Jewellery Workshop with Pennie Jagiello
29th - 30th September 2018
From take away to wear away, this two-day jewellery workshop will guide participants to reconsider disposable and single use plastics through challenges of considered redesigning. Using objects that are often used and discarded without consideration, participants will be guided into deconstructing and redesigning form, and reworking found materials into new and wearable objects of delight.
Beginning with a walk along Nungurner jetty foreshore to collect discarded plastic debris, further inspiration will be drawn from the stunning natural surrounds of the studio to be incorporated and transformed along with an assortment of other plastic objects.
Workshop participants will explore mark making techniques often more traditionally employed upon metal or wood along with a variety of cold joining techniques and applying these to the collected selection of household plastics. Throughout history metals have been associated with value and wealth while plastics were designed to replace expensive natural materials. As a master of mimicry plastics eventually became a disposable commodity with unforeseeable environmental impacts.
Suitable for anyone interested in salvaging their marks in time as wearable heirlooms!
This workshop will be limited to 8 participants

For those of you looking for accommodation options we can highly recommend Jetty Road Retreat or on airbnb a great little cottage as both are fantastic. They are clean, groovy and have stunning views of the lakes, islands and ocean. Best of all they are both only a short drive or walk from our studio.
Alternatively, if you feel like you really deserve to spoil yourself then head to Goldsmiths in the Forest for hosted accommodation featuring wonderful food and a beautiful, private rain-forest location. It is only a short 15 minute drive through the Colquhoun forest from oneofftwo.
If your partner or family is lucky enough to be traveling with you then they will have plenty to occupy their time whilst you are busy in the workshop. Nungurner provides an abundance of outdoorsy activities including fishing, swimming, sailing and kayaking on and in the lake. Bush-walking and mountain-biking in the nearby Colquhoun forest are really great and there are two other MTB parks, each less than an hour away. Surfing at Red Bluff near Lakes Entrance can be a hoot when the swell is up also - so pack your car with all the fun gear to enjoy a wonderful break!
