Course Overview

Learn how to make living jewellery and come away with a greater sense of wellbeing and environmental awareness.

During this short course, participants will be invited to make and wear a living 'vessel’. This vessel will be a small wearable object made from either a biodegradable natural material such as string, paper, cotton fabric, and corn starch or made from recycled objects and materials. Learners will then fill this vessel with soil, compost and seeds that are native to the Goulburn Valley region and/or house a living plant.

By wearing this living jewellery and taking it home, participants will have the opportunity to form a relationship with the item through daily plant care. The wearer will then have the responsibility to plant out and care for the ‘growing jewellery’, highlighting the fragility of life and nature and promoting a sense of responsibility.

Designed for beginners, this course will teach participants some basic professional jewellery-making skills, including how to saw pierce, file, emery, form, shape, construct, assemble and polish an object (vessel) while gaining insight into basic design principles. The course will also enable collaboration and the opportunity to discuss and learn about a range of recycling and environmental issues.

Participants will need to:

  • Wear safe, closed-toe footwear (no sandals or high heals)
  • Bring a sketch/notebook, pen and pencil
