Recently seven students in Sue Shore's popular ‘Simply Silver’ class represented the art school in the annual National Jewellery Show in Wellington. Their individually designed and handcrafted jewellery was displayed in a full size cabinet alongside many professional jewellers.
The jewellery students who took part were Julie Brown, Rose David,Kim Entwisle, Jane Gray, Ruth Taka, Alex Vale and Lesley Watson.
The show was open to the public for three days between the 8th and the 11th of September at the Michael Fowler Centre. The Gala Preview was opened by the Mayor Celia Wade-Brown.
The show was a great success with many visitors buying jewellery from the Fine and Contemporary jewellery on display and we were extremely happy that a number of students sold their work during the show.
Inverlochy student - Rose David - and her partner also produced an excellent brochure advertising Sue's jewellery classes and the school in general.A large number of people showed interest in the variety of Inverlochy art classes available and we hope to get some new students next term as a result!
