Skull SessionsNext Meeting: TBD

This group is for everyone! If you have an idea for the next topic, please email us.

Skull Sessions: A Reading and Discussion Group IRL
Time to take the texts that everyone passes around online out of the virtual sphere and give them their due in real life. If you don’t have the time to critically comment on these writings as they are posted but you have something to say, please come. This group is open to anyone who would like to have a conversation about the current  happenings in the contemporary art jewelry world and beyond.  Voicing your ideas and actively listening are equally important, so please join us even if you would rather type responses on your laptop.

All are welcome.
