About Edinburgh College of Art
Jewellery & Silversmithing is a long-standing discipline within ECA and has an established and outstanding reputation for fresh, exuberant work that demonstrates creative and conceptual originality and a profound practice-based understanding of a broad range of materials. Considerations of material and materiality and design innovation drives a curriculum that supports a reflective understanding of the subject and its wider industrial, commercial, and cultural contexts. The considerations in question also support students and staff, while challenging the perceived boundaries of the subject. A breadth and depth of teaching and learning balance practice with innovation to create artefacts that share a common sensitivity to the complex relationships that humans form with objects.
