February was our first month of officially giving back to the wonderful community that is Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur. After months of intense work and sleepless nights setting up the studio classes, we could finally take a breather and offer these talented youngsters their first taste of jewellery making.
For two full days, The Academy played host to nine teenagers from Dignity for Children, a local charity focused on providing quality education in an effort to break the cycle of poverty.
The group of 17 and 18-year olds took to goldsmithing with ease as they made themselves right at home in our studio. At the end of the two-day class, awards and prizes were presented to the top students who were rightfully proud of their creations! The real winners however, were all of us at the Academy who had the pleasure to teach such a polite and endearing group of students. We can’t wait to see you again for your next jewellery design class!
