Jewellery Short courses

Birmingham City University

Courses are available at intermediate and advanced levels, as well as courses running at beginner level for those who have little or no experience of working with jewellery.

Transforming a piece of silver into jewellery, building a jewellery business online and designing jewellery using iPads are some of the activities included in courses on offer.

Frank Cooper, manager of the Jewellery Industry Innovation Centre at the School of Jewellery, said: “The short courses give an opportunity to any person involved in the jewellery world or other creative industries to learn highly specialised techniques and approaches in a relatively short and concentrated time frame.
