O-PiN Studio and Website Launch
Friday 30 May 18.00 – 21.00
The Briggait, 141 Bridgegate, Glasgow, G1 5HZ
///Ground Floor Gallery and Studio 209///
O-PiN invite you to an exhibition of works in the Briggait to launch our new studio space and the new O-PiN website. O-Pin is a collective of jewellery designer – makers based in the Briggait, Glasgow, who are interested in sharing their work in engaging and unconventional ways. O-Pin hopes to inspire other people and help the practice of Contemporary Art Jewellery by spreading awareness.
O-PiN is also a project in which people are invited to participate through making a pin. Cards with the blank pin can be given or left anywhere to be discovered. The recipient is then directed to the O-pin website where they are given instructions to make a pin. The instructions encourage the use of material exploration with an emphasis on using recycled and renewable sources. On the website there is a gallery of the pins that have been submitted and a wealth of information relating to Contemporary Art Jewellery.
