Program: One-Year Course
Period: Jan 13, 2020 - Jul 24, 2020

Hi, I am Doreen from Singapore. I have learned crochet at a very young age, and decided to try wire crochet jewellery. Last year, I submitted a wire crocheted bracelet in participation of the Art and Design Completion of Accademia Riaci 2019. It has won the 2nd place in Jewellery Making category. Therefore, with this great opportunity, decided to widen my knowledge and to deepen my skill in perusing the jewellery making course.
