A04. Intermediate and Advanced Jewellery Course.
This course is suitable for students with intermediate and advanced jewellery making skills.
Course Aims: The course aims to introduce and develop the practical skills we use for working precious materials in contemporary jewellery making. Students are encouraged to keep a sketchbook to record ideas and experiences, to inform the design process.
Course details: This course will assist you on an one-to-one basis, providing the tutoring, tools and equipment required to achieve your personal objectives. You will have the opportunity to improve existing skills, also developing new skills by exploring new techniques. As the course progresses you can end up producing rings, bangles and brooches, experimental jewellery, art pieces etc. In addition, throughout these courses I introduce a new theme or technique to the group, to stimulate new ways of working.
Theme: The group focus for this term will be ‘Etching’. As well as experimenting with more traditional stop-out techniques we will look at photo-etching as a means of transferring patterns or images onto metal. As the course progresses students may wish to use these techniques to make rings, bangles and brooches etc.
Please note, I anticipate that more advanced students are likely to arrive with a personal project in mind; I am always happy to facilitate on an individual basis to support your personal requirements.
