About the course

During this course you will explore and experiment with different casting processes and use them in an unconventional way. Traditional techniques like sand, water, ice and cuttlefish casting will be taught and used as the starting point of your creative journey. Through casting into different media, you will be encouraged to ‘cast outside the box’ and take the process literally outside the studio, to cast into gaps, cracks and other items in the street. We will be using different metals such as pewter, silver and bismuth.

You will explore the possibilities of the different techniques and metals and find out where they can take you on your creative process to produce unique pieces of jewellery and small objects.

 

Who is the course for?

Jewellers, artists, craft practitioners and students who are looking to explore new approaches to making, who want to get the chance to experiment and broaden their creative working practices. Jewellery-making experience is preferable but not essential.

 

Who will be teaching?

K2 founders and course leaders Kelvin J Birk and Katrin Spranger are professional jewellers with years of teaching experience. Meet the tutors here.
