Locating The Precious – 25 – 31 August 2019
Lin Cheung was invited to give a workshop at Boisbuchet. ‘Locating The Precious’ invited participants to freely explore ideas concerning preciousness and where that might be located by responding to the immediate environment and using readily available materials.
For over 25 years, CIRECA (Centre International de Recherche et d’Education Culturelle et Agricole), the non-profit organisation running Boisbuchet’s program, organises interdisciplinary workshops. Participants from all over the world live and work here together with noted designers, architects, and artists – not to come up with perfect results, but to gain insights into the creative process and the challenges involved.

Many Congratulation to Lin Cheung our Year 3 tutor, Lin was presented with The Françoise van den Bosch Award for contemporary jewellery on the 10 November 2019. The Françoise van den Bosch Award is presented bi-annually to an internationally renowned jewelry designer with an influential body of work and voice, on the recommendation of an independent jury.

The Françoise van den Bosch Foundation is named after the Dutch jewelry designer Françoise van den Bosch (1944-1977). It seeks to promote contemporary jewelry design by supporting young talent, rewarding proven talent and bringing contemporary jewelry to the attention of a broad audience.
