Rachael Colley is an award winning interdisciplinary artist and senior lecturer in Jewellery and Metalwork at Sheffield Institute of Arts, Sheffield Hallam University. She gained an MA in Goldsmithing, Silversmithing, Metalwork and Jewellery from the Royal College Art in 2010. Her current research brings together jewellery – created predominantly using food waste – and ambiguous artefacts for eating. She invites diners to wear these visceral jewellery pieces whilst consuming food with alternative dining tools.

You will have an opportunity to use Rachael's 'cutlery comb' during our interactive lunch, along with other implements that she has been working on. You will also hear about her recent show at Steinbasser and her future plans as an interdisciplinary artist.

Lynne Speake is the founder of Precious Collective and a Contemporary Jeweller using found objects. Based in Cornwall, she has been exhibiting internationally and is challenging what it means to be 'Precious' in the world of Contemoprary Jewellery.

The two artists will be in conversation and you will have the opportunity to ask questions about their work.
