Description

A SHORT LEARNING PROGRAMME OFFERED BY THE DEPARTMENT OF JEWELLERY DESIGN & MANUFACTURE AT THE FACULTY OF ART, DESIGN AND ARCHITECTURE (FADA)

Artisinal weaving techniques are common to cultures around the world. In Africa, weaving plays an important role in the production of objects for everyday use, as well as being used to convey important cultural information. In this course, the French bobbin-lace technique is used as a basis to inspire a range of contemporary African jewellery, produced to accompany a couture collection by a leading South African fashion designer.
