2023 will be the year of Japan for The School of Jewelry Arts supported by Van Cleef & Arpels. In addition to a program of classes and lectures in the first quarter, it will transport its “Bird Paradise” exhibition, already organized in Paris in 2019, there.
The School of Jewelry Arts returns to Japan in 2023. Founded in 2012 in Paris, Place Vendôme, with the support of the House of Van Cleef & Arpels, it is organizing a new Japan Special Program in Tokyo from February 24 to March 10, 2023.
This is not the first time that this educational and cultural institution, the only one in the world to open the doors of the jewelry world to the general public, has travelled to Japan, this country of extreme refinement with which it resonates.
In 2013, a Nomadic School took place for the first time outside of France, in Japan, with various courses, interactive lectures and an exhibition. In 2019, the School returned to Tokyo. For this 2023 edition, the School of Jewelry Arts has chosen to deliver its program at the Gaien Campus, the bridgehead in Tokyo of the Kyoto University of the Art.
Courses and lectures
18 courses, including four new ones, led by professors and craftsmen who are experts in their fields, will be offered on the themes of “The History of Jewelry” (7 courses), “The World of Stones” (5 courses) and “Know-How” (6 courses). Lectures, i.e. interactive discussions on four topics related to jewelry, will also be offered, as well as five workshops for young people.
