The exhibition »Schmuck aus Alltagsgegenständen« (Jewelry from everyday objects) shows the artistic results of the cooperation between Akademie Schloss Solitude with children of the Maria Montessori Elementary School Hausen. From April 21 to 25 the Zurich-based jewelry designer Claudia Stebler, Solitude fellow in 2007, held a workshop with students of the classes 1 and 2.

Claudia Stebler, born 1970 in Basel/Switzerland and a 2006 Solitude fellow completed her goldsmith apprenticeship in Basel from 1991-1995 and studied jewelry design at the Pforzheim University from 1998-2002. For the following four years she worked at the Pforzheim University as a scientific associate. She has now relocated to Zurich and is expanding her jewelry collection. Steblers works can be obtained from the Swiss galleries Friends of Carlotta (Zurich) and Galerie Beatrice Lang (Bern) as well as from Galerie Moha (Vienna), Fritz Schmuck (Berlin), Pontenplas (Ghent/Belgium) and Ornamentum (Hudson, NY/USA).

Nine further workshops, among others with Goran Zivadinovic (designer, Stuttgart), Sylvie Boisseau and Frank Westermeyer (video artists, Geneva) and Gabi Schillig (architect, Berlin) will take place at the Maria Montessori Elementary School over a time period of two years as part of the »Kunststück« program initiated by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
