FULL PROGRAM JEWELERY 2022/23

Head of Department: Catarina Silva
Through practice, students will gain a technical knowledge of jewellery-making in its various expressions, both traditional and contemporary. This experience is accompanied by an indispensable reflection on the history and evolution of this ancestral form of expression. The program is multi-disciplinary in nature and whenever possible favors on-premise learning, as opposed to on-line. Students are encouraged to develop a personal artistic language, as a result of the group’s and their own individual questioning of the symbolic dimensions of jewellery and the value attributed to the jewel in the contemporary art panorama.
