This Jewellery and Silversmithing programme from London Metropolitan University will train you to harness more sophisticated design and research skills, which will serve as a starting point for you to develop your design language and truly engage with meaning and context. You’ll find that experimentation and radical thinking are central to learning at this level. Live projects will drive your ambitions and you’ll deepen and strengthen your practice with social and collaborative interactions.
The course focuses closely on developing practice in relation to what is required for commercial success, whilst also framing this in the broader context of positive social impact. You’ll graduate a flexible and resilient jeweller or silversmith (or a designer in a similar field), ready to define your unique place in the industry. You’ll also be supported to apply your skills across broader design arenas.
Studying with a core team of academic teaching staff who have strong links to industry, along with high-profile visiting lecturers who are active at the forefront of their practice, you’ll grow your understanding of professionalism in your sphere. Motivated by ‘real-world’ projects, there are opportunities to rehearse design processes and strategies for client briefs provided by our partners. Ideas will develop through feedback from leading industry practitioners. Studio practice is supported by formal delivery of supporting theory and research methods in dedicated modules which serve to enrich and add depth to your work.
