“Lost in the maps of sound" is the metaphorical title of the jewellery workshop, which will conduct the participants to a new state. Through several practical exercises and drawing, participants will achieve an evolutionary process to help them in the future to continue their individual creative process.

Participants will combine cross-disciplinary thinking and hands-on assignments aiming to embrace a critical discourse towards making. Space, material and the city will be taken as a starting point, attempting to sneak, explore and therefore perceive new atmospheres and new outlooks.

This course intends to stretch everyone's mind, take advantage of the essential potential lying in-group thinking and facilitate the ground for fresh possibilities of practical experimentation.
