  • Paula Benson


School of Jewellery


Sat 9th June @ 2:30 pm - 3:00 pm



Life imitates art: 6 key artefacts in Blade Runner 2049 and the hidden stories they tell.

Film and Furniture founder and editor Paula Benson will dissect and discuss significant design artefacts in the film Blade Runner 2049 to share the hidden narrative behind these objects – supplemented by fascinating facts gleaned from conversations with the movie’s Set Decorator.

Given the technological, political and environmental news that has hit us over the last few months, the choice and design of many of these objects predict the future with more insight than one might realise.

Located conveniently in the heart of Birmingham’s Jewellery Quarter, the School was founded in 1890. It is the largest in Europe, with excellent facilities and expertise to develop a career in the sector.

A blend of traditional historic and cutting-edge contemporary, The Vittoria Street building’s historical facade conceals a contemporary environment including workshops, a specialist library, an atrium gallery and exhibition space. The extensive refurbishment resulted in awards from the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) and the Civic Trust.

The venue is well located for anyone wanting to explore the Jewellery Quarter and discover its history.
