Students can explore the creative design language of jewellery in goldsmithing and silversmithing. Often degraded to decorative embellishment as everyday accessories, jewellery loses its worth in the industrial consumer world. The workshop demonstrates how individually designed handmade jewellery becomes a work of art, bridging the gap between function and beauty. The boundaries of applied and fine art overlap, creating opportunities for experiments in form and function. 

Students can fashion jewellery or utensils on their own or in supervised courses in the goldsmithing and silversmithing workshop. Imparting artisan expertise and technical know-how forms the basis for experimental work with materials and techniques.
