BA (Hons) Silversmithing & Jewellery:
This one year programme is equivalent to the final year of a degree course. Students should have already completed a Foundation Degree or HND in a relevant subject.
This course builds on our successful Foundation Degree enabling students to continue their studies at Truro and Penwith College. It is also suitable for students who wish to progress to honours from other appropriate courses.
Unique to Cornwall, this Silversmithing and Jewellery course is aimed at students who wish to focus on both the vocational and the cultivation of an individual interpretation of personal craft practice.
Through problem-solving assignments you will be expected to take an energetic and creative approach to a range of craft skills, materials and technologies developing a high level of professional competence.
There will be the opportunity to develop traditional craftsmanship in areas such as raising, planishing, box making, making settings and findings, setting stones as well as researching new technologies.
