Laura Ngyou

Laura trained at Middlesex University and the prestigious Bishopsland Workshops in Oxfordshire. Her work is experimental, manipulating metal to create reimagined natural landscapes sympathetic to a gemstone’s individual character. She has taught at Bishopsland, The Jewellery and Silver Society in Oxfordshire, and as an artist in residence at Southhill Park Arts. 

Approach to teaching

I have a free approach to teaching, demonstrating step-by-step practical skills, using written and visual aids and encouraging others to develop their own projects and styles.

Inspires own work

My work reflects a fascination for miniature worlds found within the natural landscape; from exotic jungle flora to the humble rockpool.
