Athene studied first at Middlesex University and then at London Guildhall University’s Sir John Cass faculty of Art and Design, graduating in 1996 with a degree in Silversmithing, Jewellery and Allied Crafts.
During her degree she undertook varied placements, working with a Milliner and a Carpenter alongside the more traditional jewellery placement. Her interest in many different media has led to an interesting cross reference of disciplines, and a willingness to be open minded and inventive when applying techniques and using materials
Athene now works from her studio in Guernsey and holds regular open evenings. Visits to the studio can be made at any time, by appointment. Please contact Athene if you would like to be included in the mailing list for future open evenings.
Workshop assistant Sofia joined us in 2015.
Sofia studied at Guernsey College of Further Education and graduated in 2015. Having spotted her work at the Greenhouse Gallery in July 2015, we knew she’d fit right in.
Sofia does much of our paperwork – our invoicing etc, and also makes some of the beaded jewellery. She also spends ages on the website, tweaking here and there so that everything looks lovely.
