Course content

Our MA Jewellery programme encourages the development of an individual and distinctive jewellery practice through engagement with contemporary approaches to materials, body and form.

Pursuing exploration through playful investigation of a diverse range of material expressions, you will be encouraged to challenge preconceptions about materials and status within the world of jewellery and fashion.

Conceptual investigation and critical thinking inform the practice-based approach of this programme; reflective practice will enable you to integrate conceptual and material thinking. This programme is devised to assist you in developing and refining a new approach within the practice of contemporary jewellery making.

Through research and making, a critical framework will be developed that will enable you to address complex ideas, new thinking and commercial demands regarding the function, value and status of jewellery in today’s society, and in its relationship to the body.

There will be the opportunity to investigate the relevance of different markets, from the commercial to the conceptual and the performative.
