Jewellery Practice 4 builds on previous study providing students with a solid basis from which to develop their ideas and research in a more independent way. At this stage of their development students will begin to focus more on their own interests in a particular area of jewellery and object-based practice maintaining an experimental approach to their research.
This unit will guide students towards a more self-directed way of working within the discipline. The emphasis is on articulating new ideas that contribute to contemporary jewellery and object-based practice in an interesting and progressive way and to realise these ideas at an advanced level.
Upon successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
- Develop a more profound understanding of the specific issues of contemporary jewellery practice in the context of other Art, Design & Architecture practices;
- Deepen their level of engagement with three-dimensional forms through an experimental approach to materials and processes;
- Conduct an advanced level of research in the context of both set and self-directed projects;
- Develop more challenging ideas and a more conceptual approach to the subject matter at hand;
- Understand and apply the rules of occupational health and safety appropriate to the discipline practice.
