Colour has got me. I no longer need to chase after it. It has got me for ever. I know it. That is the meaning of this happy hour.  Colour and I are one. I am a painter.           (Paul Klee)

What does it mean for us ?  We will work with coloured pencils to express our personal idea of color.  We can use pencils in different ways. The idea is to transform them into something else.  The workshop is aimed at students, artisans, artists, designers, teachers and anyone intends to get involved with this subject, having basic skills in craftsmanship or jewellery making.  We begin the working day with a short meditation. We need an empty to leave our old ideas and begin something new. Then our body and mind will be ready to start.  Through different exercises we experiment some different ways to use the coloured pencils. We will explore colours, volumes, shapes, surfaces.  When we are ready we can begin to realize jewellery.

M.Cristina Bellucci: I’ve been working as a contemporary jeweller for 18 years. My initial approach was working with metals, then my interest shifted to unprecious materials and ordinary objects. I am interested in transforming the matter; what is ordinary holds the potential to be transformed into something special and beautiful. Usually I design through making. In the last years I was fascinated by color so that it becames a sourse of inspiration.

This workshop intends to meet the participants’ specific requirements.            Each participant will have the chance to put into practice basic jewellery techniques such as: saw-piercing, filing, soldering, forging, polishing and finishing, wax modelling, etc…                 As well as learning or improving traditional jewellery techniques, each participant will be introduced and encouraged to work with a variety of unconventional materials (epoxy resin, plastic, paper, fabric…).      There will be also short talks/discussions on contemporary jewellers whose work is conceptual and participants will have the chance to work on concepts using whatever material they feel most appropriate.   This workshop is open to all those people who need to learn or improve their skills in jewellery design and making.

Arianna Pittini: Having travelled to England to study, I gained a Bachelor degree and a Master degree in jewellery design. Contemporary jewellery fascinates me. I enjoy investigating how non precious materials may be ascribed value when placed in the context of jewellery. My approach and practice is intuitive. I enjoy working with a variety of materials such as paper, iron, fabric, silver… I have taught Art and Design in England and I am lecturing in “ Jewellery Design” in Art Academy in Rome.

I am interested in transforming the matter; what is ordinary holds the potential to be transformed into something special and beautiful. I design through making.
