Helping Talent Flourish

 

We are proud to present work from the Flourish Jewellery Project, a social enterprise founded in 2020 to develop craft making skills within marginalised groups. Pieces from participants will be on display in the Upper Gallery for the duration of the festival. 

Set up by makers and community educators Jessica Howarth and Lisa Arnott, the Flourish vision is,

‘To enable individuals from hard-to-reach communities to access high-quality jewellery training taught by professional makers. By engaging in this project, participants can experience positive change which contributes to better health and wellbeing, alongside improved social and economic outcomes for themselves and the communities they live within.

With funding from The Goldsmith's Centre, Hamilton & Inches and more, the project offers two programmes - Flourish and Glow - allowing participants to develop their creative skills to the next level.
