Program description

BA (Hons) Jewellery Design

BA Jewellery Design promotes a wide range of approaches and contexts for professional jewellers. The course will introduce you to technical, design, critical and communication skills. It promotes active learning through projects which are devised to help you initiate, develop and realise ideas. The course focuses on visual awareness, research, observation and experimentation. Drawing is considered an important tool for investigating and communicating your ideas. Computer-aided design is also integrated into the curriculum, allowing you to incorporate these techniques into your work.

BA Jewellery Design aims to help you find and develop your individual identity. It will also encourage you to discover the ways of working after graduation that suit you most. The course promotes an awareness of cultural issues relevant to jewellery. We also encourage an investigation of the ethical implications of jewellery manufacture. We will support you to explore social and environmental issues and maintain a responsible practice. The course is strengthened by its excellent, external links with institutions and industry. These provide opportunities for collaborative projects with sponsoring companies and organisations. This will allow you to develop the ability to work with others as part of a team, as well as independently. It will also give you greater awareness of the professional skills needed to further your career. These projects are also beneficial for the professional contacts they can offer.

An important element of the course is cultural studies. This offers a range of ideas and skills to critically analyse objects, images, spaces and practices in art, design and popular culture. Additionally, talks from visiting speakers will educate you in a range of approaches to jewellery design. Speakers include high-profile designers and practitioners, giving you the opportunity for direct contact with industry professionals.
