Programme Overview

This course will introduce you to a variety of practical skills that form the basis of precious metal jewellery design and fabrication. You will learn how to cut, form, solder and construct silver and other metals to create wearable jewellery pieces. A range of technical and decorative techniques such as rollprinting, press forming, doming and polishing will be covered. You will work towards completing a number of simple pieces, progressing to more sophisticated techniques as your skills develop through the course. Tuition is provided on a one-to-one basis along with practical demonstrations. Each student will be asked to bring their own basic kit of hand tools for the course. Copper and silver can be purchased from the department during the course.
