Jewellery

  • Jewellery

The golden rules for learning by playing, creating by studying and progressing by teaching.

Students on the jewellery courses have the opportunity to experiment with various traditional and contemporary methodologies and techniques for creating jewellery. From the sketch and the technical design of the object, students move on to its creation in the workshops, guided by the teachers and technical assistants. Each one produces their own piece, according to their own preferences with the appropriate techniques and the most suitable materials for that object. They work with silver and stones, and can call on materials of every type of which the school has a wide stock. All materials are included in the fees, and the jewellery produced remains the property of the students, who can take them away at the end of the course, leaving on for the school for purely promotional purposes. The jewellery courses can last one, two or three years.
First-year entry is open to everyone, while for entry to the second or third years students from other schools, or self-taught, have to pass an entrance test and present their portfolio. Those who cannot attend the three-year course can attend the one-year courses (first, second or third year of the three-year course), or the two-year course (first and second years of the three-year course). The main courses include practical lessons in the workshop (16-20 per week) and some hours of theoretical lessons such as History of Jewellery, Technical Drawing and Gemmology. The courses can be complemented by others (see Academic Courses).
