Greetings from the Association for Contemporary Jewellery, we hope you are all staying safe indoors, and are as well as can be managed. 

ACJ staff are still working remotely and from home, as usual. The Glasshouses exhibition is still in the pipeline and more news will be sent in your e-bulletin, so do start planning and making your entries!

Unfortunately we have closed the Connections | Connessioni exhibition at The Lighthouse in Glasgow, but we are still hoping to take the exhibition to Italy later this year. Again, we'll update you when dates become clear.

 

 

Many of our members have benches and tools at home, but we know that many others do not and cannot be making during the seclusions. We hope you can develop some good designs! The Board are working on some ideas and challenges for you.
