Faiza's Jewellery-Making Workshop
Young people learn the skill of jewellery-making
Thanks to Young Leader Faiza, young people in Hackney learned how to make jewellery in her jewellery making workshops. The project made use of her expertise in jewellery making. Participants will learned new techniques in jewellery making and design and created two original pieces, one to keep and one to sell to raise money for Unicef. Jewellery pieces were sold at Pembury Community Centre. The aim of the workshop was to teach young people the basics of jewellery making process and the skills of planning/presenting their items for sale.
The series consisted of 6 workshops which engaged 9 young people ages 13-21 and took place at Bootstrap. The work brought young girls together, boosted their confidence, helped them express their creative side and design jewellery they can wear and show friends and family. It brought people from different communities together, which contributes to more cohesive communities.
Faiza would like to run another jewellery workshop in the future, using the knowledge and experience gained from the previous workshop to improve upon the next.
