What is the Undergraduate Summer School?

Our Undergraduate Summer School offers practical training for undergraduates who have completed their first year on a UK-based Precious Metal course (second year for Scottish Universities). Based at the Goldsmiths' Centre, you will be given the chance to receive intensive skills training in jewellery making and silversmithing.

What will I learn?

Under the guidance of an experience Master craftsperson, you will learn and practice a range of transferrable jewellery and silversmithing skills working in precious and non-precious metals.

As part of a group of 8 undergraduates, the course is designed to increase your confidence and enhance your basic understanding of technical processes, such as joining, cutting and forming metals. 

You will leave the course with the skills to help you succeed in your educational projects and design development, in your second year – and in your future career. 

“The advice on structure and skills, the attention to detail and designing was very useful – I don’t have that at my uni. It will help when I’m designing and making”
