About the exhibition:

The jewellery/objects exhibited were the result of the ‘Unnatural‘ workshop with Lauren Simeoni and Melinda Young that challenged approaches to making, materials and deconstructing found objects. Participants were encouraged, via a series of making exercises, to confront and challenge the borders that exist within their practice. Work created during the workshop was exhibited as part of the ‘Edges Borders Gaps‘ conference program in the Three Weeds Hotel kitchen garden and shared on Instagram.
