This workshop will initiate and encourage a conscious approach to the design of the brooch back and its mechanisms. The participants are introduced to a variety of pin mechanisms and learn how to realize them technically. They will be guided through exercises on different needle techniques and ways of thinking about what a needle can be and how it can be solved. But moreover the participant will learn and understand the integration of the brooch back and pin mechanism into the whole creative process of making a brooch.
The workshop teaches technical skills but moreover a new way of thinking: a holistic approach to the brooch.
Intermediate and advanced students only.
