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.
