Riina O in Scotland
Last week Riina O went to Scotland to visit the team of Hands of X hand prosthetics in Dundee and Glasgow (more info about this amazing project coming soon...) and to teach the glove making workshop at the Edinburgh College of Art.
The view from the classroom window was straight at the beautiful medieval Edinburgh castle, high on the hill.
During the 4-day workshop the jewellery and silversmithing students learned some of the hand stitching techniques for glove making, adjusted the standard glove pattern to fit their own hand size and made up the first sample glove, having designed the decorative points(or a more complex decorative embroidery in some cases). The last day was left for them to see how could they integrate the newly learned skills into their personal jewellery practice. I am so curious to see the final results...
