Jewellery has historically played a crucial role in bringing about changes to the law and instigated social reform. Jewellery designer and social entrepreneur, Stephanie Graham, uses the craft process in jewellery making as a method of healing for those who have experienced poor mental health and substance use.
Stephanie considers jewellery not only a holistic method for improving mental health and well-being, but as a method of engaging those with the lived experience of poor mental health and substance use with relevant stakeholders to engage them in the policy making process.
The outcomes of this project have been co-produced with Hillcrest Futures, the Parish Church Nurses and Just Bee Productions to showcase the potential of using jewellery as a method of putting those with lived experience at the heart of policy making.
In these workshops you will learn how to paint with enamel and Stephanie will talk you through her journey and research so far.
