Grab your sun hats – Camberwell Arts Festival 2016 is almost here!
Oh, we are so excited here at Flux Jewellery School; the sun is shining and our vitamin D dose is topped up and raising the mood, all in time for our Camberwell Arts Festival 2016 Open Studios events.
When we open our studio doors to the public this summer you’ll find it’s all (well almost) about Flux students this time as we celebrate their enormous talent and their diverse creativity.
For the Open Studios weekend we’re highlighting our brilliant jewellery students at work. We open our doors for you to see them in action. Watch them work their magic to transform raw materials into delightful objects of beauty! You can also see their amazing jewellery in the displays around the studio. If you fancy having a go yourself, we’re running a hands-on drop-in workshop too. Check out the details below:

Bishbashbosh – Give currency to your old coins
Back by popular demand, we are offering you, the public, an opportunity to turn your coppers into ‘Top Brass’. Dig out your favourite old coin from pre-Euro Europe or other distant places; bring it down to Flux Studios and we’ll help you transform it into a 3D wearable pendant that will give it new life and true currency!

Of course, as well as being a Jewellery School, we are also a Jewellery Studio: Flux Studios is home to a membership-based collective of professional jewellers who work together to share knowledge and skills, and to develop their independent jewellery businesses. We make collections for sale and we also work to commission.
Some of us will be at the studio to oversee the fun for our Open Studios events, We’ll also have a carefully selected showcase of jewellery on show and if you’re interested in our work you’ll have an opportunity to ask us more about how to purchase or commission work.
Rare Beauties Showcase –
Jewellers from the Flux Collective present a favourite and iconic piece from their latest jewellery collections. Explore our diverse and inspiring range of jewellery styles. We’ll be here to talk with you about our jewellery and how we work.
Workshops and Short Courses –
In the run up to the Open Studios weekend, and by way of contributing some metal magic to our Creative Camberwell we have also planned some special workshops for the beginning of Camberwell Arts Festival, for the public to enjoy. We have 2 special, free family workshops in pewter casting, and a 2 day casting course for adults too! Places are limited, booking is essential. Follow links for further information
