Resident Jeweller wins Visual Craft Award Edinburgh

We are delighted to announce that St Margaret’s House resident and jeweller, Mirka Janeckova, is the recipient of the Emerging Visual Craft Maker Award Edinburgh which she will use to make a new collection in ethically sourced metals and glass.

Mirka is currently working towards promoting sustainable jewellery practice in both her own and her teaching practices.

Mirka has also set up the Midas Skills School along with Basia Mindewicz (Edinburgh School of Icon Painting) and David Mola (Glass Artist). The inspiration to set up the school came from  an ancient Greek myth of king Midas who was able to turn everything he touched into gold. They endeavour to teach you to learn new techniques and skills which will enable you to turn everything you touch into ‘gold’ – expression of your own creative mind. They specialise in art and craft techniques – from Icon painting to Glass Making and Jewellery.

Check out their website to see their upcoming workshops.
