"After graduating from art school in 2012 the graduate in residence programme at PMW gave me a space where I could continue to develop my work. It was a great experience, seeing how a real workshop was run, meeting like minded people and gaining experience assisting with some of the classes. It was an ideal transition for me from art school into the early stages of my jewellery career and I would highly recommend it to other graduates unsure of what the next step is!"
