Free jewellery workshops to promote pandemic wellbeing

2 mins read

As Covid-19 restrictions ease across Forth Valley, four local artists have joined forces with Creative Stirling to offer free jewellery making workshops for people living in Stirlingshire.

The creative sessions, led by professional artists Roberta Pederzoli, Jenna McDonald, Andrea Gardiner and Rachel Davies, will offer locals a chance to try their hand at jewellery making.

Jewellery designer, Roberta Pederzoli from Quinta Essenza, an Italian contemporary jewellery company inspired by nature, is leading the project.

I’m a great believer in the importance of art as a medium to promote wellbeing. The workshops will give locals an opportunity to get creative, relax and connect with other people after the stress of the past year.

There will be no charge to participate in any of the sessions thanks to funding from the city’s place partnership, Scene Stirling.

Kevin Harrison of Scene Stirling said:

“We’re keen to support inclusive and accessible creative opportunities such as this through our open grants scheme. Stirlingshire has a well-established tradition of jewellery making and silversmithing, and these sessions will offer locals the chance to try it out for themselves.”

Six of the workshops will take place in Made in Stirling, 44 King Street, with a further two in Bannockburn and Fallin. All events will be Covid-19 compliant.

The confirmed sessions include:

  • Friday 18th June, 11am-12.30pm, Mosaic Pendants  
  • Saturday 26th June, 2-3:30pm, Paper Filigree Jewellery
  • Sunday 1st August, 11am-12:30pm, Polymer Jewellery
