3 Month day time course (1 Day per week for 12 weeks)
This course is aimed at those interested in learning how to design and make contemporary jewellery. You will learn how to carry out primary and secondary research, work with silver and other metals and experiment with non-traditional materials including resin, wood and fabrics. By the end of the course you will have learnt the essential jewellery making skills and techniques and will have the confidence to use these skills at home. What makes this course unusual though is that a significant amount of time is also spent on finding inspiration and developing creative, unique and contemporary designs.
This is a day time course which meets one day per week for three months. The teaching will begin with some basic skills building in research, drawing and materials exploration. There will be several short design projects throughout the course and regular peer discussion to push your ideas further. You will be encouraged to push the boundaries of wearable jewellery and to develop your own style and identity in your work.
Throughout the course traditional jewellery making techniques will be taught and there will be ample opportunity to experiment and expand on your knowledge in a fully equipped workshop.
