About your tutor:
Kate Wilkinson's jewellery is based around textured silver units that have developed through experimentation; gathering ideas at the workbench and observing details in nature and urban decay which influence the surface of a piece. These units are combined with semiprecious beads, climbing cord and cork to add colour and create mood. By altering the scale and pattern formation she creates simple earrings to elaborate multi unit one-off necklaces. Kate studied Jewellery and Silversmithing at Loughborough College of Art and Design followed by an MA in Jewellery at the Royal College of Art.

Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided.
