After going completely virtual during the pandemic, the TOUS Jewelry Trade and Artisans School (ETJOA), the socio-educational project launched by TOUS in 2018, kicks off its fourth edition with a return to the classroom format that will be supplemented with digital content.
TOUS has once again opened its doors to students and institutions and has welcomed visits from the Cordoba School of Jewelry, a National Center of Reference; the JORGC Jewelry School; the Official School of Jewelers, Goldsmiths, Watchmakers and Gemmologists of Catalonia, and the Valencia School of Art and Design (EASD). Guests were able to visit the firm's workshops and recently remodeled headquarters, including TOUS HERITAGE, the archive-museum for the conservation of the firm’s historical heritage. The museum traces the company’s history through its values from different perspectives -historical, business and family -which at the same time traces the evolution of the sector over the last 100 years.Fourth edition of ETJOA
The TOUS Jewelry Trade and Artisans School, the pioneer educational project that promotes artisanship as a means of professional training, currently collaborates with 10 educational centres: JORGC Jewelry School (Barcelona), Manolo Blahnik Art School (La Palma), IES Barajas (Madrid), Escola d'Art i Superior de Disseny (Valencia), Arsenal Art School (Vilafranca del Penedès), Jewelry School of the Atlantic (Vigo), Córdoba Jewelry School, Prezzi Jewelry School (Mexico), INBA Crafts School (Mexico) and Cindor School (Portugal).
"ETJOA emerged from our commitment to preserve the jewelry craft and our love of artisanship. Through this project we are able to pass on to future generations the value of restoring and renewing jewelry, a key element in our sector, where sustainability is at the heart of everything. We create pieces that are made to last, and we work to ensure that this is possible through restoration techniques," according to Rosa Tous, Corporate Vice President of TOUS.
