You are invited to view a collection of jewels from the 17th, 18th and 19th centuries and taken on a narrative about how they guided the course of modern history. This is an interactive workshop, where you can handle materials, such as human hair jewellery, and ask questions about how and why they were created. This is for the lover of history, art and fashion, where you can discover marvellous tales from time and see how wearing a jewel defined an entire life.

Our workshop leader Hayden Peters been teaching mourning jewellery history since 2005 worldwide, showcased in museums, written articles & been on TV. The topic of grief & love in jewels is one of the most beautiful & important factors that defined who we are today. They give us a look into how our own ancestors behaved, which wasn’t as different as how we are today! These little tokens represented an entire life & discovering more about these lives give us greater insight. Learn, love & laugh as we see how a king who wanted a few more wives led to the creation of an entire mourning industry!
