OIL SHALE COURSE

Blog December 18, 2015

I would kindly like to thank Jewellery and Blacksmithing department for the opportunity to conduct “Oil Shale course”. Also I would like to thank my students who experienced tough emotional three-month period: I saw them obstinate and passionate,  modest and expressive, sad and happy. And this is great, because we all have changed. 
The story of this course is that Oil Shale Competence Center that is a successful organization concentrating upon the best domain know-how in oil shale mining, expressed an interest to create, with the help of Jewellery Department of Estonian Academy of Arts, jewellery or objects that is possible to use as a gift for their guests.
Down below You can see the pictures from assessment day (17.12.2015) that took place at Estonian Academy of Arts.
