A Sense of Magi

Friday 6 November - Friday 20 November
All Day

We are made from the stuff of stars,

From ancient times to present day, we still look to the stars above for guidance.

As above, is below. (Emerald Tablet, hermetic text.)

We would like to invite you on this visual journey, that brings the past to the present, through an exploratory time lapsed celestial narrative of todays re-emergence of ancient holistic classical teachings. Whilst, we are experiencing the same effects of bubonic plague (1350.) through a fusion of jewellery, talisman and art, we follow the light of rebirth bringing a new Renaissance period.

An online exhibition by Xanthe O’Connor, Marcin Krupa and Constantine Zeus.

One-On-One Glass Jewellery Making Class

Saturday 7 November
11:00 am - 4:00 pm

If you are new to glass, but would like to design and make few pieces of your own bespoke jewellery, then this class is for you. You don’t need any prior skills or knowledge, just imagination and creativity. This is one-on-one workshop, but you can come with another person as long as it is a family member or someone from your support ‘bubble’.

We will use colorful fusable glass, which incorporates metals and is perfect for making sparkling jewellery, and both a microwave and a larger glass kiln.

In this workshop you will learn:
• the basics of fusing glass
• how to cut and layer glass in preparation for fusing
• how to fuse glass in a kiln
• post-fusing processing, such as grinding and polishing
• how to attach jewellery findings to glass

At the end of the workshop you should be able to take home a finished pendant (or two) and a pair of earrings (or two) of your own design. You are welcome to bring your own ideas or follow a pre-designed project. The skills that you will learn will help you start making glass jewellery at home or in a studio setting. Tools, and materials will be provided, but please bring an apron with you and wear a mask.
