Next Saturday we will be helping out with the Loughborough Jewels project… Come and join in the fun, but don’t forget to book…

Loughborough Jewels

Join jeweller and jewellery historian Roberta Bernabei in the creation of a new series of brooches as part of her Loughborough Jewels project. This participatory project seeks to share and preserve memories of the Market Town of Loughborough.

You will be asked to bring along an image, photograph or object that relates to your memories of Loughborough, and Roberta will take a record of your object and ask you to describe it and its significance to you and the town. This will form the basis for a brooch design, that Roberta will make and that you will be able to collect at the end of the project.

Each brooch will take its form from a window frame found in the town and will be completed with imagery and words given to Roberta by each of the participants. As the brooches are finished they will join part of a special exhibition installation. At the end of the exhibition all participants will be able to collect and keep their brooch.

The exhibition will be available for viewing at the following times:

Thursday 28 January
11am – 4pm

Friday 29 January
11am – 4pm

Saturday 30 January
10am – 1pm

Roberta will also be running a special workshop for children aged 5+ and their families. Please be aware that parents/guardians DO NOT need to book a ticket in order to attend this family workshop.
