Founded in Chiang Mai by Natta, ‘jibberish’ is from the word ‘Gibberish’. The word means meaningless speech or nonsense. It can explain the kinds of things people love, items which are imperfect and kitsch. In her work processes, Natta tries to use more hands and less machines. This may mean nothing to some people, but there’re also a number of people who appreciate handmade items without any significance.
Since she was young, she wore her mother’s handmade clothes and saw her making many things by herself for her family. She then realized how wonderful items are when put together by the busy fingers and a caring mind.Currently, Jibberish works on a diversity of crafts including indigo dyed clothing, jewelries, wooden decorative trinkets and stationery.
In this workshop, Natta and her partner, Bee will introduce to us, the processes and work safety to making our own torch fired enamel jewellery. Participants will go through a full experience of working with essential materials such pre-cut copper sheets, torch fire, enamel powder and alum solution etc. Depending on personal progress, participants can choose from the blank pieces of copper provided and make up to three enamel jewellery (pendants, earrings or brooches).
The workshop will be conducted in Weekend Worker's studio at Clemenceau Ave North. Do note that workshop purchased is non-refundable. You may wish you get a friend to replace you if you are unable to make it.
