Lisa Woods first trained as an Early Childhood Teacher and whilst au paring in France came across a prospectus for a London art school with jewellery classes. She went on to obtain a B.A. Hons Degree in Art and Design (Jewellery) from Central St Martins, London and studied diamond mounting and silversmithing at Sir John Cass Faculty of Art, London.
On her return to NZ Lisa has tutored at UNITEC, MIT and currently at Hungry Creek School of Art and Craft, Auckland.
Lisas’ work evolves from the materials she chooses and references her love of jewellery from antiquity for its lush, tactile, handmade qualities.
