Jewellery and Silversmithing (Advanced)

1. Overview

Students will have the opportunity to explore a number of metal forming techniques including an introduction to fold forming and anti-clastic raising, creating form using the fly press, raising/sinking small bowls, forging and spoon making.

Colouring of metal through an introduction to enameling on 3 dimensional forms will also be covered.

2. What you will study

Students will be encouraged to develop their understanding of design through a personal project, drawing from personal inspiration, exploring the potential of test pieces and aiming towards the production of one or more finished pieces.

Students are encouraged to keep a visual diary, which reflects their personal practice, individual inspirations and research into artists within this field. This becomes a personal journal of their development during the course. Students will be able to build on their knowledge and understanding of the design process through, examples of sketchbook work/3d sketches/test pieces, class talks, group/individual discussion and studio-based practice.

3. Entry Requirements

This course is recommended for students who have completed the Intermediate Jewellery course, or who have equivalent experience. Students must have existing knowledge and practice of working in the jewellery workshop.
