Workshop Description

Participants in this workshop will explore the wearable vessel. You  will create a  unique vessel and maybe wear it home!

Using natural materials and recycled/found objects, the vessels will be filled with ‘seed pods’ or perhaps be a home to a living plant.

Notions of promise, wellbeing and awareness are evoked when the jewellery is worn and acts as a signifier for the broader environment.

Jan will provide numerous materials from her collections. Participants can also bring items of their choice, i.e., biodegradable natural materials such as string, paper, and cotton fabric. Found objects and recycled materials – anything that can be refashioned into wearable vessels.

I exhibit regularly, and my work ranges in scale from jewellery to large sculptural pieces.
My recent work explores the relationships between artifacts and identity, including experimentation with the theatrical narratives of dolls/puppetry and masks.
I have been an artist in residence and workshop instructor at numerous schools, universities, arts organisations, and galleries. I am a former gallery director with extensive experience working on community arts projects.
