We welcome students of all ages and backgrounds and often have a diverse group. Some students use the course to launch a jewellery business, to experiment with a second career in jewellery or as an alternative to a degree.
This Diploma is aimed at intermediate to advanced level jewellers who have solid experience of silversmithing. It is often taken after the Diploma in Creative Jewellery or the Diploma in Silver Jewellery but that is not a pre-requisite. If you are looking for an intensive advanced course then this is for you!
Students need to have gained experience in wax carving and Intermediate Silversmithing as well as stone setting before committing to the course.
If you are interested in studying at this level do give us a call to discuss your experience and whether the Advanced Diploma is right for you - 0203 176 0546
Many students go on to start their own jewellery businesses, some set up shops selling their work, some go into further training in jewellery to hone their craft and others work in the field of jewellery.
Some simply enjoy the year and carry on making after for their pleasure!
