- Project 1 – How to identify precious metals, how to prepare, melt and cast scrap into ingots or bars; how to process into sheet and wire.
- Project 2 – Design a piece of jewellery to be cast using delft sand. Prepare a mould and cast scrap metal into your new design.
In addition to the processes taught on this course each student will work to their own brief to improve their jewellery design skills and making techniques.
