At our Jewellery Workshop, each student will have a designated workplace where they can master various techniques to work with different materials and learn to handle professional machines and hand tools.
Modern-day jewellery design isn’t limited to metal and gems, therefore the equipment of the Workshop allows hands-on practice with plastic, timber, glass and organic materials.
