NZ Certificate in Arts & Design, Lvl 4
This program focuses on developing fundamental skills required in goldsmithing and jewellery.
You will use hand-making techniques to achieve dimensions & marking out, forming, filing, soldering, making settings, cutting stone holes and back holes, and polishing.
These skill-sets focus on establishing design concepts to a brief, finding solutions through own research of elements and principles relevant to creating jewellery to the required standard.
Projects will be made entirely by hand, or blended with other manufacturing techniques to produce viable jewellery designs.
This program is closely linked to employment focused activities, and will suit anyone who is considering further study to make goldsmithing and jewellery a career.
