Programme Overview

Please note that our next programme of courses for Spring-Summer 2018 will be available from March 2018.


This class started on the first week of October. It is now too late to join it.

Develop and make an original design using your own personal research. Explore and engage in feedback and design interaction. Execute this design idea into a piece of jewellery through experimentation with material, narrative and imagery. Be experimental and try new techniques and ways of working. Identify tools and gain competence in using them.

This is an intermediate level course, for students wishing to design and make contemporary jewellery in an environment that encourages experimentation and the use of a wide range of materials.

Your learning will be supported by a presentation on contemporary design practice. Emphasis is put on creative and thoughtful ways of finding inspiration, helping to open your mind to the possibilities of contemporary jewellery, and creating more original designs.
