Contemporary Jewellery: Exploring Design Concepts and Material Manipulation (Intermediate)
This course builds on previous experience to create personal contemporary jewellery pieces, following the design process through research and development of materials and techniques.
Students will explore the qualities of a range of materials and ways of working in the context of contemporary jewellery making, by exploring surface decoration, colour, form and scale.
2. What you will study
Students will follow the design process to create their own projects, through research of other designers work, gathering of stimuli and development of their own designs.
Sketchbook drawing, model making and generating test pieces will give students the opportunity to experiment and problem solve. These explorations will form a visual diary of the course. Group and individual discussions will be integral in the sharing of ideas, inspiration and the consideration and relevance of jewellery today.

This course is recommended for those who have completed the Foundation Jewellery course or who have equivalent experience.
All students are required to be at least 16 years of age on the commencement of course.
