New Designers

Sheffield Hallam University

Course name : BA (Hons) Jewellery & Metalwork
Section :
Students studying BA (Hons) Jewellery & Metalwork receive a practice lead, research enhanced, contemporary Art & Design School experience. Our students produce objects that span from the commercial to the speculative, the batch produced to the bespoke, the machine made to the crafted. We are concerned with audiences and markets, provenance and narrative as well as evolving technologies, innovation and materiality. Making is central to what we do, our students work with multiple materials and processes, often juxtaposing unlikely materials alongside traditional precious metals but always considering their critical stance and position in the ever evolving disciplines of Jewellery and Metalwork. This year’s graduating student group have chosen the theme of ‘Hopes and Fears’ for their collective body of work, as their individual Jewellery and Metalwork projects are all, in some way, dealing with aspects of the collective hopes and fears of society, and the hopes and fears of the individual within this wider context. Whether their projects deal with family relationships, loneliness, protection, equality or magic they all use the discipline to propose new and innovative ways to tackle, promote, celebrate and overcome the struggles of life. It is with excitement that we share these projects with you – the exhibition is intended to provoke you into considering your own ‘Hopes and Fears’ whilst viewing the work. We hope that you enjoy the results of the hard work of this year’s graduates as much as we have enjoyed supporting their creative journeys.
