- Karin Johansson
StatementWe believe in diversity. At the Jewellery Art programme at HDK we supply our students with well-equipped workshops, challenging projects and time for free exploration during their journey towards finding a unique artistic voice. Working with traditional techniques as well as investigating modern design approaches generates a variety of opportunities in the jewellery art field. The Academy premises in Gothenburg, originally build in 1904, house Design, Textile Art, Ceramic Art and Jewellery Art programmes in an open atmosphere where students cross share knowledge. Our teachers are active artists and we strive to keep a close contact with the art community and society on both the local and the global scenes.
As a student you are encouraged to research materials and artistic ideas individually and in groups. International artists are invited as guest teachers to provide new perspectives. You will improve your skills to present and discuss your work. Artistic practice combined with reflection helps you grow a strong identity as an artist.
The Jewellery Art programme at HDK – Academy of Design and Crafts is a part of the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts at University of Gothenburg.
HDK offers Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree programmes.
