From February 20th through the 23rd a Jewellery making workshop will get underway at the Youlou Art Centre.
The focus of the seminar is to offer anyone who is keen on learning and developing their skills in jewellery making, the opportunity to create new and exciting products for a new business.
All participants must be age 15 and older. Each workshop is limited to 8 people per workshop.
These workshops are being taught by Ms Hilary Auty a British designer who has been coming to SVG for many years. She is interested in working with people who have been making jewellery or thinking of doing so.
She will teach basic techniques through demonstrations, offer hints on presentation of products and packaging and talk about design, and encourage participants to use their imagination and seek ways of reflecting on the feel of St. Vincent and the Grenadines.
The focus of this workshop will be to learn the language of jewellery making- learning the names and uses of the various components involved in jewellery making.
March 4th will see the 3rd annual Arts Show and Sale and the public launch of the Art Centre and Gallery.
It is a fundraiser for the Art Centre and Gallery. There will be a cocktail reception with entertainment with wine and cheese and excellent “grab bags” on sale.
