Craft in an Age of Change

Craft in an Age of Change is a major survey of contemporary craft at the beginning of the second decade of the 21st century, examining the place of craft in the creative economy and the working patterns of makers and other craft professionals today. 

Following its publication in February 2012, the Crafts Council in association with CraftNet, is holding a series of workshops around the country to present highlights from the report, discuss the findings and share ideas about their implications for the future development of contemporary craft. See below for details of events in London and Bristol. There will be two further events in Cambridge and Liverpool in June/July with further details to be announced.

UNEXPECTED PLEASURES THE ART AND DESIGN OF CONTEMPORARY JEWELLERY 5 DECEMBER 2012 – 3 MARCH 2013 Unexpected Pleasures is a celebration of current jewellery design and examines what we mean by jewellery from a number of different perspectives. The exhibition traces the radical experiments of contemporary jewellers who have challenged the conventions of jewellery design. The exhibition also explores the essential meanings of jewellery, celebrating jewellery from the point of view of both wearer and maker. The exhibition will also bring together important work from around the world, demonstrating the relationship between jewellery, art and design.

NOW RECRUITING!!!

Collective.Ireland 

Art/ research jewellery is a growing disipline, with many countries steadily developing, educating and exhibiting a wealth of talented new jewellers, who are increasingly subject[ing] the traditionally decorative function of jewellery to a critical examination and question[s] its assumptions. of jewellery to a critical examination and question[s] its assumptions.

Thousands of people travel to Munich every year to see the best of the best, exhibiting alongside the rising stars within art jewellery from all over the world, as part of the annual Schmuck Show, which is now in its 64th year. Symposiums and fairs are regularly held in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, Poland, to name but a few.
But where are all the Irish?
We have a rich history of art and culture, and yet, the Irish preseace is vertually non-existant within this disipline. 
If I can paraphrase the [in]famous words of Alan Partridge; “ Der must be more to Ireland dan dis”.

This brand new collective is seeking members. The criteria is that you are an Irish Citizen- regardless of where you live currently.
We are seeking active members to be part in this collective, people who are interested in seeking opportunities, collaborating, exhibiting, and generally creating lots of noise about how great Irish Art Jewellery can be to a wider public.

for an application form please email: hello(at)laura-bradshaw-heap-is.me.uk.
Application deadline is the 10th of June.

Please forward!

Lonmin Design Innovation Award 2012 Call for entries

Celebrating 10 years! Make it THE year you take part!

The Lonmin Design Innovation Award is delighted to be celebrating its 10th anniversary in 2012. For those that have been waiting for the right time to enter this platinum-based jewellery competition which has grown into one of the top accolades in the UK jewellery industry, the time couldn’t be better. 

For the first time in the competition’s history, a theme has been set for this year’s contest - “Red Carpet Glamour”. The brief is “to create an original platinum jewellery design for the red carpet that channels the glamour of the 1920’s and 30’s into a creation that confidently belongs in the 21st Century”.

For the eight winners, the rewards are grander than ever with a £1,000 prize each, more publicity, and a new London venue for the all-singing all-dancing awards ceremony on Sunday 2nd September, which has become one of the most important fixtures on the jewellery calendar.

Sponsored by Lonmin, one of the world’s largest producers of platinum, and supported by International Jewellery London and Johnson Matthey, the award continues to be judged under a two-part system which recognises designers with more than five years’ commercial experience and those with less than five years in the industry. 

The deadline has been extended to Friday 20th April, so there’s plenty of time to get your entry in, and the winners have 10 weeks to make up their piece. 

For further information and an application form, please contact Julie Dauncey on 020 8995 5006 or email julie@blueincevents.co.uk and visitwww.jewellerylondon.com/dia

Kind regards,

IJL Team
