This is a project-oriented that raises students awareness of connections between technical, material and conceptual skills. This course delivers an approach to design as a systematic development to a given or self-initiated problem. The focus is on design as a process of cenceptual development, rather than design for industry. The use of engineering equipment and chemical processing technology may be be explored in this course. Students devise individual responses to two set themes to develop their ability to apply techniques appropriate to particular concepts. In addition, an individual work proposal is developed, applying critical thinking and innovation to a broad range of materials, techniques and concepts. A program of studio theory is undertaken to examine and situate the students work within the historical and contemporary contexts of gold and silversmithing. Occupational health and safety instruction is an integral part of this course.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Plan and execute a gold and silversmithing design-based project which demonstrate a high level of skill in the application of new technologies and practical processes;
- Effectively interpret, communicate and present ideas suited to the gold and silversmithing project through integration of concepts and processes, showing familiarity with research methodologies;
- Demonstrate expanded awareness of historical and theoretical contexts for art and design practice relevant to gold and silversmithing;
- Consider their own work in relation to broader cultural contexts.
