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.

Jewelry Making One-Year Course (n.2)

Pic 1 – Everyday on my way to school, surely and certainly my eyes hold the beauty of this magnificent Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore. It stands pridefully tall with many fine but bold details.

Pic 7 – Today we learn about perspective drawing. To me, it’s an in depth learning. But according to the professor, this is taught in elementary school to children from ages between 10 and 12. This is one of the reasons Italy raises many great artists! Wow!

Pic 8 to 10 – Coming from a young country Singapore, we do not have much of history in Art and Culture. Therefore, I always look forward to every Friday, the Art visit. Today, we visit Palazzo Davanzati. It is amazing. What I fall for is the handcrafted tatting and bobbin lace. Thin fine threads were used to create such delicated and refined collars and cuffs to be sown unto the bright colour gown sophisticately. I am in awe!
