Lili Spain..."Memento Amour"
I love this ladie's jewellery. I first came across her work a couple of years ago quite by chance. Her work is amazing. Part sculpture,part fantastical almost dream like and with a touch of iconography... and the good news is that she's running a workshop!
Discussion and Sculptural Jewellery Making Workshop
Using a miscellany of once treasured but now discarded objects; trinkets, vintage jewellery and ephemera, artist and self confessed hoarder Lili Spain leads a discussion and workshop which will breathe new life into forgotten things. Each participant will create and take home a unique and wearable sculpture.
Participants are invited to bring along a piece of jewellery, a trinket or a locket sized photograph to use as a starting point, then they will weave and sculpt a new narrative around it using items from Lili’s collection of treasure.
No prior jewellery making experience is required, just a little imagination and the ability to use a pair of pliers.
This workshop is part of a wide range of exciting events we have planned at the Freud Museum to coincide with the Objects in Mind exhibition which runs from 24 November 2010 - 27 February 2011.
£35.00/£30.00 Concessions or Friends of the museum.
