Skjermbilde 2023 08 28 111217

Join a jewellery art course during the autumn holidays with contemporary jewellery artist Dariusz Wojdyga. Over two or four days, you will have the opportunity to meet new friends and learn about jewellery art and how to make exciting jewellery in new ways. The trainers will introduce the children to the possibilities of jewellery through different techniques and materials.

About the course

"Long hundred legs or bears in space" is the artist's title for this exciting course.

If you didn't already know, your jewellery can be just as inventive if you let loose. Kunstnernes Hus invites children aged 9-13 to a super cool course where they learn to make creative jewellery as an expression of their own feelings, thoughts and ideas.

They also get to learn a little about the history of jewellery and the function jewellery has played at different times and in different cultures, and how artists express themselves today. We use both new and recycled materials, such as metals in silver and steel, wood, textiles, plastic, paper, cardboard and thread. This course is suitable for anyone in the target group who likes to build and give shape to their own ideas.

Over two days, you will be introduced to basic techniques on how to create a piece of jewellery from idea to object. You'll learn about jewellery art, techniques and inventive tools. The participants gain knowledge about techniques that everyone can explore further on their own, but also about how artists have expressed themselves in jewellery art through different times. Over four days, you will have the opportunity to immerse yourself in jewellery art and try several techniques.

No prior knowledge or experience is needed, but the desire to learn and the joy of design come in handy. We offer fruit and the participants bring their own packed lunch.
