The Association for Contemporary Jewellery

is devoted to the promotion, representation, understanding and development of contemporary jewellery in the United Kingdom and abroad.

Founded as a membership association in 1997 and registered as a Limited Company in 2006, it recognises a need to foster discussion, debate and critical review and interaction amongst its members. To this end we organise conferences, lectures, seminars, workshops and an annual general meeting for our members. Our regular newsletter, findings, features reviews, information, comment, book offers and discounts and is of benefit to both our members and the wider public. We also produce a monthly e-bulletin featuring news and opportunities.

We welcome as members practising jewellers, associated designers and crafts people, educators, students, gallery owners and retailers, museum curators, critics and collectors - indeed, anyone with an interest in contemporary jewellery.

Employment issues

1. Tax relief for self-employment - consultation

The Government is consulting on how it could extend the existing tax relief for self-funded work-related training by employees and the self-employed. Currently self-employed workers can deduct the costs of training incurred “wholly and exclusively” for their business where it maintains or updates existing skills, but not when it introduces new skills.

Reforming the rules so that the self-employed can deduct expenditure in these circumstances would support those learning new skills to expand their businesses. It would also make it more consistent with the existing rules for employees. (See sections 5.10 and 5.11 of the consultation document.)

The Crafts Council will be responding to the consultation to welcome and support the proposals. We’d urge you to do the same. The deadline is 8 June.

LISA WALKER AT TE PAPA MUSEUM, WELLINGTON

Te Papa Museum in Wellington is currently staging a major retrospective of Lisa Walker's work: I want to go to my bedroom but I can't be bothered, charting her remarkable 30 year career from her studies in Dunedin in the late 1980s, through her time completing her Diplom and etsablishing herself as a major new talent in Munich, to her return to New Zealand and today.

Throughout her career, Lisa Walker has pushed toward the extreme. She is described as a ‘contemporary archaeologist’, excavating culture, art, fashion, and photography for ideas and materials. An extraordinary range of works is on display, made from materials including copper, pearls, and pounamu, to found objects like LEGO, cell phones, and egg beaters.

I want to go to my bedroom but I can't be bothered runs until 22 July, go here for more information. https://www.tepapa.govt.nz/visit/exhibitions/toi-art/lisa-walker-i-...

he Center for Craft, Creativity and Design began hosting a two-day convene in 2002 with the charge to identify and prioritize initiatives that will advance craft in academia and the curatorial worlds. Leaders come together to discuss topics at the intersection of craft and higher education, research, and museum practice. Previous participants have included museum directors, curators, university faculty, scholars, editors, critics and artists with diverse media expertise. The discussions have informed the programs offered by the Center and have nurtured relationships across the various disciplines where craft is learned, researched, and/or shared with the public. Think Tanks have also inspired initiatives such as Makers, the first comprehensive survey of contemporary craft in the United States, the Journal of Modern Craft, and the Craft Research Fund Program.
