Course name : BA(Hons) Jewellery & Silversmithing
Jewellery and Silversmithing is a small and specialised programme with a world-class reputation for high quality craftsmanship and design.

We balance old and new approaches to traditional craft techniques with innovation, exploration and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our objective is to design critically informed work that integrates ‘thought’ and ‘practice’ to contribute towards the ever-evolving creative industries within and outwith our discipline.

We have a philosophy that encourages a wide range of approaches, from the traditional gold and silversmiths’ trade, to the contemporary influences of art, craft, design, technology and science.

Our students are typically curious, resourceful, independent thinkers who are able to skilfully translate an idea into a beautifully designed artefact.

These qualities are ever-present within this year’s group of graduating Jewellery and Silversmithing students, whose final collection of works are the result their own independent studio research during their final semester of studies.
