This is a practical class and you will be learning how to make pieces of jewellery to develop or build on your skills. You will learn to work confidently with metals and other materials. As a beginner you will start with a series of basic practical projects designed to encourage familiarity with the tools, materials and processes most frequently used in the studio. You will make three or four pieces of jewellery starting with base metals and progressing to working in silver. As a returning or intermediate student you will be encouraged to develop your own designs with technical help on a one to one basis from the tutor. Technical projects will be set where appropriate. You will learn through group demonstrations and individual, one - to- one help and guidance, with technical and critical advice depending on your needs. The tutor will give demonstrations, presentations and lead group discussions around technical and creative subjects. You will work at your own pace, negotiating individual learning goals with your tutor and assess these on a learning statement.
