Great opportunity for local jewellers

South African jewellers are encouraged to apply for a residency opportunity in the UK.

The Liverpool Hope University in the UK, in partnership with the Bluecoat Display Centre, is offering a six-week designer/maker residency for a South African jewellery designer.

If you are keen to develop your career, work in a range of materials and fully immerse yourself in academic life, you need to apply.

Affording designers the opportunity to broaden their cultural frame of reference, the programme allows for the exchange of ideas between designers from South Africa and the UK.

The residency will run between October and December 2011 and applications close on 31 March 2011. Visit Bluecoat Display Centre for more information.
