The two-year BFA program offers a comprehensive grounding in contemporary jewellery and jewellery design to those without prior experience or possession of jewellery-making skills in a relatively short time. The course begins with traditional techniques and skills in the construction and design of jewellery, and then introduces the students to new technologies, creative use of resources, and material expression for originality in design.
The program is divided into six 14-week modules that provide, through a challenging but organic full-immersion process, a balanced combination of practice and theoretical principles.
In the vein of Alchimia’s philosophy, the program nurtures an approach to learning that merges the theoretical, the pragmatic, and the experiential, tradition and innovation, in order to develop confidence, skill, creativity, and imagination. It is tailored to each student individually, with teachers providing personal coaching, and builds on a variety of different professional experiences, including carefully selected study trips both locally and abroad.
These two years may function as a self-contained program for those interested in achieving high-level results in the short term, and/or prepare for admission to a master’s program in contemporary jewellery and body ornament.
