Showcasing a diversity of materials and sculptural techniques Betty will transform a collection of raw materials into new jewellery forms. Working with kiln fired vitreous enamels, fold-formed and anodised metals, fabrics, rubber and resin-set objects Betty’s approach will provide a visually engaging residency with much appeal to the public. Betty will conduct artist talks and demonstrations as part of her residency whilst exhibiting artists from the Main Gallery will conduct hands-on workshops with the public to reveal the endless possibilities of merging the mediums, textiles, jewellery and sculptural forms.

Parts of the Story

Parts of the Story
Christel van der Laan

Christel Van Der Laan will be showing this exhibition at Stanley Street Gallery until 22nd November, the link below will take you to the website.

Contemporary jewellery is often concerned with the personal stories and journey of the maker.

The selection and composition of materials to give form to thoughts, feelings and memories,

is often the most challenging and exhilarating part of the process of making.
