Dubai Design Academy (DDA), which provides accredited professional jewellery making and design courses from its base in the Dubai Multi Commodities Centre (DMCC), will host three dedicated workshops at Jewellery Arabia 2022, the Middle East’s premier jewellery and watch event.
Taking place at Bahrain International Exhibition & Convention Centre (Sakhir) from 22-26 November 2022, attendees will design and create rings, pendants and other jewellery alongside other hands-on experiences and practical knowledge, learning from one of the region’s foremost jewellery and design academies.
The DDA will organise the following workshops “Stacking Rings”, “Metalsmithing 101”, and “Introduction to Jewellery Illustration” on the side-lines of the event. This marks the first time live trainings will be integrated into the show. The workshops will see students drill, saw and solder metal into jewellery, experiencing the various techniques used in jewellery making and design. Students will also get the chance to illustrate their own diamond solitaire ring with expert insight from the DDA’s on-hand professionals.
Jewellery Arabia participants as well as students in Bahrain will be granted a 15% discount on the DDA workshop fees.
Maryam Al Hashmi, Director of Precious Metals, DMCC said: “We are delighted to be part of Jewellery Arabia 2022 in Bahrain. The Dubai Design Academy is an integral part of DMCC’s efforts in enhancing the precious metals and stones industries in the region, elevating the skills of both seasoned jewellery professionals and rising talent alike. Through our three expertly curated workshops that the DDA will conduct at Jewellery Arabia, we aim to identify, nurture and raise the next generation of jewellery professionals on various aspects of jewellery making and further increase our support for the entire industry.”
Mohaned El Mahgoub, General Manager of Informa Markets Bahrain, said: “It gives us great pleasure to be partnering with Dubai Design Academy as part of the talks and workshops that will be hosted during this year’s first-ever educational programme at Jewellery Arabia. Through this partnership, we aim to serve as the learning platform of choice for ‘jewellers in the making’ and hope to launch similar initiatives in upcoming events.”
The workshops will take place from 22 to 26 November. Places at the workshops are limited and registrations will be made on a first-come, first-served basis.
