Join Nina Gilbey and Bekkie Cheeseman as they share their research, encourage experimentation and launch their new book Colours and Textures in Jewellery. There will be an opportunity to view colour and texture samples and purchase the book.

Who are the speakers?
Nina Gilbey was trained in Jewellery & Silversmithing at The Cass and later graduated with an MA from the School of Jewellery in Birmingham in 2000. With a background in Fine Art, she is interested in the relationship between line and form, and how negative spaces create a solid void. She is passionate about working with metal, using traditional techniques to explore and challenge its inherent qualities. She has been teaching the subject since 2000, and founded London Jewellery Workshop in 2011 to offer a student led environment, promoting inspiration and creativity.
Bekkie Ora Cheeseman trained in fine art, sculpture, kiln formed glass and jewellery. Her work seeks to produce pieces that are both sculptural and experimental. She is interested in exploiting the opportunities given by the properties of materials, and the possibilities of techniques, to make work that inspires questions and playfulness. Bekkie has been teaching 2d design and jewellery manufacture accredited courses since 2009 in a number of London institutions. She designs bespoke tuition programmes for learners at all levels, online and in person.
