Education

The Made / Worn: Australian Contemporary Jewellery education kit is designed for students of all ages and abilities. Selected themes have been expanded and draw on the work of all artists in the exhibition. 

Activities can be adapted to suit a range of different educational environments and are not limited to students studying ceramics. This education kit was created by Melinda Young for Australian Design Centre.

This Education Kit will be finalised soon.
