In Gold & Silversmithing Design 5, the project-oriented program extends student technical, material and conceptual skills. In difference to the same level in the BVA this course delivers an approach to design as a systematic development to a given or self initiated problem, the course is not focused on design for industry but design as a process of conceptual development. Students devise individual responses to one set theme to develop their ability to apply techniques appropriate to particular concepts. In addition an extensive individual work proposal is developed, applying critical thinking and innovation to a broad range of materials, techniques and concepts. The use of digitally controlled manufacturing processes are most likely applied for the execution of course work. A program of studio theory is undertaken to examine the historical and contemporary contexts of gold and silversmithing. Occupational health and safety instruction is an integral part of this course.
