The course aims at integrating the finer aspects of design, technology, materials and processes with the various levels of production from precision-orientation to vendor based manufacturing.
The learners attain a high-level of competence in the creative design process from inception to realisation. They are given the knowledge and understanding of the creative potential of materials and construction methods and are encouraged to explore widely and select appropriate manufacturing processes and finishing techniques.
Learners gain a thorough understanding of historical and contemporary professional practise through visiting galleries, shops, trade fairs, exhibitions, and high profile retail fairs. Guest speakers, practical workshops and visits to professional studios, workshops and appropriate industrial sites immensely help to contextualise practical studies. Links with practising jewellers and other craft practitioners, artists and designers are also nurtured. Assignments are vocationally relevant and exciting 'live projects' guided by real-life industry briefs and representative mentorship from the industry are brought into the classroom to support the contents of the course.
