Meet your maker project at Stirling Castle
Laura has worked at Stirling Castle on three projects, working with adult learners from Art Link Central and HND Students from Forth Valley Collage. This is a sketch by June of the Kings Bed Chamber in the Royal Palace at Stirling Castle. These drawings were used as inspiration to make jewellery.
Meet your maker project at National Museums of Scotland
Laura worked with people with dementia and their carers drawing inspiration from objects in the Chamber street collection as a starting point to make new jewellery.
Teaching in Schools
Laura visits the art department at Lomond School in Helensburgh to deliver one day jewellery workshops.
