I've been selected to take part in the sixth iteration of Handshake. A New Zealand mentoring programme that encourages experimentation in the field of Contemporary Jewellery and Objects through coaching, local or international exhibitions. Master jeweller and educator Iris Eichenberg, in charge of selections, appointed Monika Brugger to be my mentor. Native to Germany, Monika has been practising and teaching in France for over 30 years.
I look forward to two years of development, research, experimentation and exhibitions, guided by an experienced senior educator. At the end of every year there will be a group exhibition, first at Te Auaha in Wellington, and then in 2021 at the Pah Homestead in Auckland.
