Jewellery and the craft of making are intrinsic to her research practice and are a vital way of exploring concepts and gaining a wider global knowledge. This talk will discuss themes such as community, colonialism and diversity through the context of jewellery, as well as giving insights into the artists own projects and research methods.

Graduating from Duncan of Jordanstone in Dundee in 2007, Jo Garner has a number of years experience in creating fine and bespoke jewellery in precious metals. More recently in 2017 she graduated with an MA from the prestigious Royal College of Art. This had a transformative effect on her creative practice and now sees her combining fine making skills with industrial materials and processes such as steel and liquid enamels. Juxtaposing these skills with materials and political context which is inherently messy, creates a body of work which allows her to challenge and critique themes which are influenced by current affairs.
