Diploma in Creative Jewellery Intensive (7 Weeks)
This is an intensive version of our 1 year Diploma in Creative Jewellery. Over 7 weeks, Monday-Friday, you will complete the full year-long course and upon reaching the criteria, will achieve the Diploma qualification. This is perfect for overseas students or those wanting intensive training over the summer.
The course runs Monday-Friday 10am-5pm.
What is included:
Included in the cost of the course are all of the basic materials needed for each lesson, use of our fully equipped studios during your classes and our usual expert tuition. You will also be assigned a support tutor who will be marking your work and will meet with you regularly to review and discuss your progress. These meetings will be outside of your scheduled course time You will be given up to 5 free days of studio time throughout the course (worth £150) which you will have access to at the end of the course to prepare for your final exhibition.
What will be expected of you:
You will be expected to attend all classes and need 80% attendance or more to pass the course. If you miss a class it will be up to you to make up the work missed. You will also keep a design folder which you will be encouraged to use to develop your ideas and will help to mark your progress throughout the course. It is also advisable to put aside some time to practice and develop your skills outside of lessons and allow time to work on your own designs. You will be encouraged by your tutor to attend galleries and jewellery events and exhibitions (although this is not necessary to pass the course).
