Intensive Courses, Workshop and Flash Courses

  • Intensive Courses, Workshop and Flash Courses

Every year the school organises some short courses, seminars and summer courses.

The intensive courses are taught by school or invited teachers: they often have a technical content, are open to all and are attended above all by people with work commitments who cannot attend the longer courses and by students from other schools.

The workshops are events that lie outside the normal teaching activities of the school: they are held by teachers, artists and designers invited by the school, and are a great opportunity to meet internationally-known jewellery creators and to work with them.

Flash courses.  Very short courses, from 1 to 5 days long. They are taught by LAO teachers, technicians and assistants, the contents are purely technical and provide a demonstration phase by teachers and a phase of experimentation by the students.

To view the detailed information, the length, the contents and the cost of all the courses, open the calendar of the intensive courses.
