Precious Metals: Advanced Techniques
As precious metal artists grow in skill and confidence, they require a broader toolset, combining materials and techniques to define their own style. Using advanced metal clay modelling skills to achieve greater accuracy, faster production times and work with more valuable metals is the first step in this process. Traditional metal smithing supplements artists’ existing experience expanding their creative potential and providing useful means to re-use components after they have been fired.
With new procedures to follow and more rigorous learning projects, courses in this segment highlight proper form, commercial quality and attention to detail. Participants are encouraged to use the school kiln to fire their metal clay projects in order to master specific kiln techniques. practice proper use of specialized traditional metal smithing equipment such as rolling mills, draw plates and soldering stations. By the end of Precious Metal Artist programme, participants own an impressive array of equipment and have produced a wide range of quality jewellery designs.
