Looking for internship

Hello dear silversmiths,

My name is Leandra Förster and I’m 24 years old. At the moment I train as a goldsmith at the “Berufsfachschule für Glas und Schmuck Kaufbeuren – Neugablonz“, in south Germany. My studies will finish in August. Afterwards, I would like to get some experience in silversmithing too. I realized early during my studies that I’d like to expend my knowledge and gain some crafting skills in this field. Therefore I want to apply for an Erasmus+ internship for about 6 months. Since I speak fluent Spanish, it would be helpful to work in a Spanish speaking country, but generally I’m open to every country in Europe.
All in all, I’m very enthusiastic about experiencing a new surrounding, especially by working. If you are interested I would be happy to hear from you.

With kind regards,

Contact: Leandra Förster or Johannes Borst

Who uses Dutch raising

So called Dutch raising is raising from the outside edge and working backwards towards the centre. This is a less known method in UK silversmithing. Dr Sandra Wilson from Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design in Dundee Scotland is looking to find out more about this method, its advantages and if it is more suited to particular forms. If you use this method and are willing to talk more about it, please contact her: s.z.wilson@dundee.ac.uk
