The 2018 Art of Craft Lectures provides lovers of fashion, art jewellery and those who see their bodies as a canvas for self-expression with an opportunity to explore the art jewellery scene in Canada today.
The 2017 Saidye Bronfman winner was Pamela Ritchie. Ritchie, a jewellery artist out of Hubley, NS, will be presenting the final lecture on May 14th. Pamela Ritchie creates jewellery that explores linkages between traditional craft processes, contemporary ideas of science and culture, and the language of alternative materials. Her work celebrates the concentrating effect of detail, and the paradox that an abundance of ideas, form, and pattern can be encapsulated in very small objects.
