#Workshopfridays #01

My friend Franca lives in Dessau and today is her birthday. One of the good thing about being a freelancer is we have flexibility and can arrange our schedules to be able to share happy moments also during the week. 

She helped me carry all the materials for my upcoming #boldexperiments workshop and we went for lunch together. After that, we came back to the amazing working space I am working at and as I had all the materials of the workshop with me, I decided I would make my own #boldexperiment. 

I started playing with the materials, and ended up building a brooch that I named "Twisted Gaze". Bold and twisted.

I liked the final result and I felt like creating a series of colorful audacious brooches. Maybe four of them? I will collect some more materials and references and make of that a future theme for a #workshopfridays session: "Audacious Brooches".

I still need to set some few rules to frame my work in these #workshopfridays sessions. Also, it wouldbe helpful to systematize the way in which I document to share the process and results. 

Learning while doing! That's the whole point of this project.

I am happy to announce my new project Workshopfridays.

Every Friday, I will choose something that will serve me as a guide or inspiration for my creative process - this might be a concept, a poem, a song, a material, a word, an artist, whatever - and I will try things out.

It is not about the outcome, but about the process! I will use these weekly sessions to try things out, fail and fail again. I will be mostly drawing and experimenting with different and new materials and shapes.

I will document every session and share the whole process with the world. Follow the hashtag #workshopfridays.

2018, anything goes!

Bold Experiments #2

Josefina Anglada

La Plata, November 2017

The second edition of Bold Experiments Workshop was held at Maria Picci Tienda Taller in La Plata, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

It was great to be at home and be able to make a workshop people were willing to take. At the same time, I went through the experience of working together with a local organiser that helped me with everything I couldn't have achieved alone because of the distance. Maria promoted the workshop, took care of the registrations and prepared the workshop room according to my needs. We were in touch through skype and whatsapp to organise and share info, pictures and questions.

I had traveled all the way to Argentina with all the materials and many tools in my luggage and again I had planned every detail: how to welcome the attendants, the booklets and workshop kits, a small present form Necklace Therapy and a nice mood board to set up.

When I got there, Maria welcomed me with a big smile and helped me setting up the space. Soon the participants arrived, each with her own strong personality.

We worked hard and happy. The space was perfect and the attendants could try out many processes and techniques apart from playing with materials, colors and composition. The results were amazing! And everyone could change their ideas into bold pieces of jewelry.

I could perfectly see the connection between each attendant’s temper and each necklace colors, compositions, techniques and shapes. I hope that this workshop will encourage them to continue with their practice.

Here are some of the pictures that my friend, Carolina Bonfanti Mele,  took with so much passion.

I want to thank Maria Picci for organizing with so much care to detail.
