New Graduates Announced

Renata Fojtikova's work explores the relationship between human and machine

Eleisha Nylund: technical sophistication

We are pleased to announce that we have selected 2 new graduates from a pool of excellent applicants for the MoB Workspace Graduate Jeweller position.

Congratulations to Renata Fojtikova and Eleisha Nylund who both come from the Jewellery and Small Object programme at Queensland College of Art, Griffith University. We are very impressed by their enthusiasm for jewellery as well as the excellent project plans they have for their time in MoB Workspace. As you can see above, both Eleisha and Renata create very beautiful and original work and we look forward to working with them in a sharing environment. Renata will be coming in on Thursdays starting next week and Eleisha will be commencing in June.

We were initially only searching for one graduate, but as Jesika Hanford has left her residency for a position at Flying Arts, and we have more of a vacancy, we have decided to take both Eleisha and Renata. Congratulations to Jesika and though we are sad she has left us as a resident, she will be back occasionally on weekends to use the workshop.

We also wish to welcome Bibi Locke, our graduate who started in MoBWorkspace last year and who is now a full resident in the space, having moved into the spot vacated by Jesika.

And we also wish to thank Anna Meredith from MoB Store at the Museum of Brisbane (Brisbane City Council), who assisted us with the application process and has always been a great support.
