Beyond The Immediate – Design Workshop with Brenda Ridgewell


Brenda Ridgewell is the former Director of Jewellery and 3 Design at Curtin University, Western Australia, and has been the recipient of many prestigious awards.

 She has exhibited her work throughout Australia, as well as in the USA, Japan, Singapore and the United Kingdom.

She is leading a two-day jewellery design course on Sunday 20 May and Sunday 27 May. The classes commence at 9.30am and conclude at 4pm.

The course will begin with discussion about the concept of design. The focus will be to on how to develop your own idea/ideas and apply them in a personal process for the development of contemporary jewellery.

The workshop will involve drawing, looking at and collecting images of interest to you and making models of your developing ideas.

Between the two workshops there will be time for you to look at your specific concept interests and bring images, drawings etc. to the second weeks session.

The second session will develop using your personal conceptual base with both group and individual discussion, a series of exercises to develop ideas beyond the immediate and eventually a design or series of designs and plans (models) that you can take forward to a resolved piece of contemporary jewellery.

The course is limited to 9 participants. The cost of $360(GST inclusive) includes materials. However, participants will need to bring an A3 visual dairy and pencils.
