This unit gives students the opportunity to further develop the ideas concepts, materials and processes in jewellery and small object making. Methods and materials specific to the Metals & Jewellery studio discipline will be demonstrated and practiced. Students will be encouraged to develop appropriate links between these methods and other means of creative self-expression. Set projects will require students to develop technical skills hand in hand with their understanding of concepts of current relevance.


On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

  1. critically analyse the design, selection of materials, working techniques, and conceptual development associated with set exercises and self-generated projects;
  2. initiate, develop and express personal aesthetic solutions in the medium of choice, applying technical and aesthetic fluency;
  3. communicate (in oral, written and visual form) responses to contemporary issues of both technical and conceptual relevance and present their work in critique sessions;
  4. understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice.


Folio of studio work: 100%, of which at least 20% will be assessed before mid-semester.
