Gray Street Workshop
Established in 1985, Gray Street Workshop is a collectively run studio and access facility for artists working in the field of contemporary jewellery and object making. The uncompromising commitment of this group of artists to their work and to a studio-based practice has enabled Gray Street to evolve into one of Australia’s most exciting and respected workshops.
To make up the current vibrant workshop team, partners Jess Dare, Sue Lorraine and Catherine Truman are joined by Lisa Furno, Kelly Jonasson and Nadja Maher.
The philosophy of the workshop partnership is to encourage a rich exchange between jewellers with a wide range of professional experience, from students and those just emerging in their careers through to mid-career and established contemporary practitioners.
Over the 30-year period, through the access bench facility, the workshop has provided a bridge between formal education, training and professional development to over 90 jewellers from around Australia and overseas.
