This course asks you to question not only your own practice, but also the essence of what we understand as jewellery itself. Jewellery's function is diverse and complex, from personal adornment to political statement, and the materials and processes that reflect this are as equally diverse.The wearable object, perhaps more than any other, has manifold relationships with people, its rich history is loaded with social significance and visual language. This route calls students to question the ways in which, jewellery communicates, and the role the wearable plays in contemporary society. Exploration of both hands-on and digital innovation is encouraged in the development of design, making and communication practices. There is access to an extensive range of material and CAD/CAM workshop facilities and opportunities to experience a diverse range of creative cultures, including related design and craft disciplines such as Graphic and Fashion Design.
You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may be admitted if you can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard; in addition, you may also need to submit a digital portfolio.
