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.

This Spring we say a fond farewell to two of our resident makers, who are both moving on to bigger and better things. Francis Campbell will be working on a major Netflix series while fashion designer Liam Davis heads off to London, the heart of the nation's fashion scene.
This means we have two studio vacancies, so if you want to take the next step in your creative career, these start-up spaces are the ideal base for your progression. Tenants have 24/7 access to their own professional studio space, as well as the benefits of being amongst creatives and receiving the support and guidance from the Making Space team.
If you would like to find out more and apply for one of the studios, head over to our website and see what having your own studio can do for your business. https://makingspace.org/rent-studio-space/?utm_source=hs_email&...

Free Craft Workshops
Making Space has been awarded a grant from Arts Council England for a new Community Engagement project.
This will allow us to offer a series of free craft workshops to community groups in Leigh Park over the next four months.
The workshops will be available in a variety of craft forms, and can be held either at Making Space or at your own venue.
We will be contacting community groups, schools and local charities with this offer very soon, but if you are involved in a community organisation and would like to be a part of this exciting project, please get in touch with Nathan Chapman at admin@makingspace.org to find out more. https://makingspace.org/
