With the creation of this course I aim to:
Enrich education and knowledge;
Promote filigree, and demonstrate the technique is being modernized and is still alive;
To preserve, share and celebrate heritage;
Support the jewellery craft in the UK and internationally.
I’m based in Scotland, but teach worldwide. If you are interested in attending a class in my studio or bringing the Contemporary Filigree Course to your country, please get in contact for dates and details.
