Blanche Tilden has maintained a vibrant practice for over twenty-five years, forging an international reputation in the dual fields of contemporary jewellery and studio glass.

Blanche Tilden—ripple effect: a 25 year survey reveals her remarkable practice and unique approach to her materials which she explores both as a material for jewellery making as a metaphor for the connections between making, industry, the wearable object and the body.

This Learn resource is related to areas in both the Australian and Victorian Arts Curriculum and includes a video of the artist in her studio, focus questions, research ideas and making activities to assist students in levels 9 to 10 and VCE Studio arts: Unit 3, Outcome 3, in considering the ideas and themes presented in the Blanche Tilden—ripple effect: a 25 year survey exhibition.

Students are encouraged to examine Tilden’s intentions in making and to explore how designers realise their ideas through different visual representations, practices, processes and viewpoints. This resource also promotes the four capabilities within the Curriculum F–10; Critical and Creative Thinking; Intercultural; Personal and Social;
and Ethical Capability.
