New course - jewellery: the design process

The Mary Ward Centre is launching a summer school this summer. There are loads of lovely courses to choose from. Do have a look. 

I will be teaching a new three day course during the summer school, from 22nd to 24th July 10.30-4.30. The course is entitled Jewellery: the design process. It is very different from any of the jewellery classes that are run at the Centre as they always focus on making. On this course we will be focussing on design and inspiriaton.


 Here is the blurb

On this three day intensive course we will be focussing on the jewellery design process from inspiration and sketching through to designing a cohesive range. We will be looking at where we get inspiration including a sketchbook visit to the V&A jewellery gallery, learning the basics of technical drawing, making maquettes, understanding the processes of wax carving/casting for making multiples, hallmarking etc. as well as having the time to work on your own designs for feedback from the tutor and the group. Your tutor, Anna Campbell, runs her own jewellery business and has celebrity clients. She sells online and through shops in London. This course has been designed for those who would like to design metal jewellery e.g. silver, gold etc. either through silversmithing, designing and sending off designs for manufacture or metal clay.
Please note, this is a jewellery design course and there will be no jewellery making.
