Keight Davis (J&SO Graduate) is running a fundraising event so she can return China and volunteer again with Eden. Her aim is to volunteer for 12 months next year assisting the Eden project. Eden is a non-profit organisation where jewellery provides an escape from the hopelessness of prostitution and gives the women hope for a future.
The fundraising event will be an evening of live music and desserts. There will be a silent auction and Eden jewellery for sale. Please pass it on to anyone who may be interested!…

PIPA ProjectPIPA Project - Tricia Flanagan's Project PIPA (short for The Peripatetic Institute of Praxiology and Anthropology) is dealing with things that are close to my heart:
This project is about revaluing skills that are being lost in consumer dependent societies, learning to fix things rather than throwing them away, sewing, repairing, modifying clothing rather than buying new clothes, using creative thinking to come up with unique and individual design solutions and aesthetic objects, reclaiming materials for reuse and developing critical-thinking communities with an eco-friendly attitude.
Leading Australian jeweller Marian Hosking will trace how she has continued to work in the field of jewellery and silver-smithing.
In 2012 Marian Hosking has had her work represented by Galerie Ra at four fairs: Object Rotterdam in February, Frame Munich in March, Collect London in May and a KunstRai , Amsterdam in July. She has 4 pieces in the Design Museum, London exhibition Unexpected Pleasures at NGV Melbourne and is currently working towards another NGV exhibition later this year. The lecture will cover her research methodology and journey as a jeweller and silversmith, how motifs are selected and translated into silver. As a jeweller and maker of small vessels with a keen interest in plants and ecological issues, she works extensively from specific natural environments in Australia selecting individual specimens to highlight their unique forms and sometimes threatened extinction.
