From take away to wear away, in this two-day jewellery workshop Pennie Jagiello will guide participants to reconsider disposable and single use plastics through challenges of considered redesigning. Using objects that are often used and discarded without consideration, participants will be guided into deconstructing and redesigning form, and reworking found materials into new and wearable objects of delight.
Beginning with a walk along Nungurner jetty foreshore to collect discarded plastic debris, further inspiration will be drawn from the stunning natural surrounds of the studio to be incorporated and transformed along with an assortment of other plastic objects.
Workshop participants will explore mark making techniques often more traditionally employed upon metal or wood along with a variety of cold joining techniques and applying these to the collected selection of household plastics. Throughout history metals have been associated with value and wealth while plastics were designed to replace expensive natural materials. As a master of mimicry plastics eventually became a disposable commodity with unforeseeable environmental impacts.

Suitable for anyone interested in salvaging their marks in time as wearable heirlooms!
