Visiting Leiden, home of dutch painters

By ameliespitz, Feb 17 2018 12:59PM

I will be one of the five Jewellery Designers selected for the Artist in Residency Program 2018 at Museum Volkenkunde in Leiden (Netherlands).

I will be doing a research on the museums' collection. In my workshop I will make use of traditional goldsmithing techniques that will be then mixed with modern applications, turning into a contemporary body of work. With the use of the 3D pen I will approach the traditional wire work in a new way, traditionally made of metal.


The Artist in Residency is interwined in the current exhibtion of the museum – SIERADEN – Makers & Dragers, which is co-curated and supervised by dutch artist/ curator Vanessa de Gruijter (MA Design Cultures, Material Culture Studies, VU University Amsterdam).


01.03. - 26.03.2018


It is possible to visit me in the studio inside the museum: Thu- Sun 12.00-14.00


17.03.2018

Additionally there will be a workhsop/ presentation on how to make jewellery with the 3D Pen

(time/date to be confirmed).


Below are some images of the workshop and of my jewellery pieces
