Designed to encourage students to discover their own creative voice the course is a great introduction to higher education in the arts. With part of the course being based in the workshop and the rest focusing on design development, research skills analytical thinking it is a well-rounded programme suited to both those wanting to launch their own brands or those wanting to move into a full degree programme in jewellery or the applied arts.
Programme structure includes a combination of online lectures, and in person (group and private) courses.
Course can be taken as a single stand-alone project, half year programme, or a complete full one year programme.
Certificate of Attendance will be provided by CSM
Project 1 - October 2019
Design & Research Based Courses - Introduction to Jewellery Design
This session covers the importance of research and source material, including the use of moodboards, muses and non-visual stimuli - text, abstract / conceptual ideas. Photos, drawings, collage and objects are all encouraged as part of this process.
Project 2 - October 2019
Design & Research Based Courses - The Sketchbook
Focussing on the interpretation of ideas and visuals, we will set the parameters of the design project. Through drawing exercises, the development of initial ideas will be pushed further. Different styles of drawing will be explored to help students find their individual styles.
Project 3 - november 2019
Design & Research Based Courses - Design Development
Specific aspects of jewellery will be considered in this session, from the different types of jewellery forms (such as rings, earrings, bracelets) and their technical limitations, to the materials and techniques used to realise the physical objects. All of these factors have an impact on the design brief.
Project 4 - January 2020
Workshop Based Courses - Design Refinement
This session explores the importance of using 3D models and maquettes as a tool in the design process. Model-making is a key step in realising a 3D form to discover and rectify any issues with form, function, scale and technical aspects.
Project 5 - february 2020
Design & Research Based Courses - Design Evaluation
What makes a successful practical design, and what makes a great design are not necessarily the same thing. We will explore critical judgement of different design styles using a range of criteria, allowing students to develop their tastes and analytic skills.
Project 6 - March 2020
Workshop Based Courses - Building a Collection
Designing related groups of jewellery pieces can be challenging. Several techniques for generating variations on a theme will be explored, as well as critical evaluation of the resulting groups of objects.
Project 7 - April 2020
Workshop Based Courses - Designing for wax carving and production
Wax carving allows for complex form and surface designs to be created in 3D objects. The design possibilities and limitations of this manufacturing process will be considered in order to create designs which translate successfully into this medium.
Project 8 - May 2020
Design & Research Based Courses - Designing & Fabrication
This session is focussed on the more technical side of design - design briefs often include specific information about budget or materials required. The use of technical drawings during the design process is crucial in the planning of a successful outcome - these drawings contain essential information about how the piece will be made.
Project 9 - June 2020
Workshop Based Courses - Technique-Led Designing
Students often develop pieces through working directly with materials and processes. This session aims to equip students with practical design solutions to help them generate unique jewellery forms with the limitations of a particular technique or material.
Project 10 - June 2020
Critical Appraisal of Course Outcomes
Key aspects of the previous nine weeks will be reiterated and discussed in order to give a comprehensive overview of the design process. Students will have developed their own design styles and their critical judgement; they will discuss their own work and engage in peer review.
No previous experience required.
