Pin Swap for Networking at the Symposium

For all those attending the Material Connections Symposium on 10th September and all those yet to get their ticket we have a great method of getting to know people at the Symposium and getting a bit of easy networking done.  Bring along a pin you have made (maximum value £5) hand it in on registration in exchange for for a Pin Swap Ticket. Then later in the day participate in the Pin Swap Lucky Dip where those who have brought a pin along get to try their luck in the tub and then the fun begins as you find the person who made the pin you picked and who has picked out the pin you made.  Great fun and a really effective ice breaker!

The JSN is awarded Arts Council Funding

The members of the JSN were really pleased to be awarded funding by the Arts Council recently.  This means we will be able to put into action our long held plans to extend our network and get to know some international jewellers and silversmiths to exchange ideas and visits.  We are also now able to put on our symposium which will benefit our group, the international group and those who decide to attend.  We hope to inspire ideas and pass on some skills.
