About the course

A practical, design-led course that enables you to develop professional bench skills with lots of hands-on workshop experience. The course consists of a range of practical projects that will explore both precious metals and more unconventional materials. Modules include:

  • Making a ring

  • Forming metal

  • Working with found objects

  • Exploring texture


You will also be introduced to contextual research in art and design, encouraging you to think critically about the creative process.



This course will provide students with the skills and knowledge necessary to progress to our Level 2 Diploma in Design (Jewellery) or our Level 3 Diploma in Design (Jewellery).


Who is the course for?
