What is the course about?

If you are aged 19 or over and have a basic understanding of jewellery making, this course is suitable for you. Gaining a range of practical skills, you will be taking the first step towards an exciting new career or hobby.

Why should I choose the course?

If you are a creative person who enjoys seeing your ideas come to life, this exciting course will be ideal for you. This fun short course will allow you to gain the skills you need to create several pieces of unique jewellery.

What will I learn?

Techniques will include wire work, ceramics, working with different beads, exploring current jewellery trends, and recreating pieces that are popular.

We may look at jewellery designers and how their work influences jewellery designs, as well as learning about the origin of different beads.

Each week you will create at least one item of jewellery using a particular technique and will have the opportunity for independent learning and extension projects.

All materials will be provided, instructional hand-outs will be distributed each week, and books and magazines will be available for you to browse.

The course is student-focussed, so if there is a particular technique or item that you would like to recreate then please bring information/photographs/jewellery with you.

You will have the opportunity to self-assess your weekly progress using an individual learning plan. You will also complete a mini portfolio of assessments, handouts, and exercises. You will be observed and coached throughout the course.

What will the course lead on to?

Upon completion, a wide range of other accredited and non-accredited courses are available to you. Please contact our Learner Services Team for more information.
