This is a project-oriented course that heightens 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 conceptual development, rather than design for industry. The use of engineering equipment and chemical processing technology may be explored in this course. Students devise individual responses to set themes to develop their ability to apply techniques appropriate to particular concepts. 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. Workplace health and safety (WHS) instruction is an integral part of this course.
 
This course alternates over two years (even and odd years). Even years will engage with the theme 'Co-authorship & collaboration'. Odd years will develop a response to the theme 'Iteration & innovation'.
