Artist in Residence
Marisa Molin from Brisbane
After obtaining a degree in Design from the Queensland College of Art Marisa completed her Masters in Fine Art and Design at the University of Tasmania in Launceston. Alongside two fellow jewellers, Marisa initiated a small jewellery studio, MoB workspace, in Brisbane’s Town Hall where she manufactured and sold her jewellery designs to the public, under the title of Resident Artist. In 2008, she had two major commissions - to design the public art for the foyer of the newly redeveloped office building situated on 545 Queen Street in Brisbane, the gateway between Fortitude Valley and Brisbane City, as well as a sculptural piece for the courtyard of the Mater Mother’s Ward. She later travelled to the UK and Greece on a working holiday, gaining inspiration for future works.
This class is an exploration of jewellery at beginners to intermediate level. The participants will make trendy designs into wearable fashions. During her workshop, Marisa aims to have each participant make a range of jewellery from brooches, necklaces, earrings and the like using individually chosen materials and encouraging experimentation to combine materials into an innovative and unusual jewellery adornment. Techniques covered in the class will involve soldering, sawing, filing, riveting and polishing.
Jewellery making experience is not required for this course. However individual tools are essential. These can be purchased day one.
Up to $300.00. A list of requirements will be sent on enrolment, or you can request a copy for perusal.
