subjects and workshops
The course starts with the history of jewellery, its evolution and its materials: gems, metals and production processes. Our goldsmithing course aims to provide students with a solid preparation in the field of business organisation and analysis of product production costs. Much importance is then given to advertising and marketing skills, including digital.
Through the workshops, the student learns graphic design techniques, goldsmith design principles and prototyping methods with 3D printing. The goldsmith workshop focuses on goldsmith techniques such as wax modelling, fire enamels, surface finishes, engraving and gem setting.
The student learns to use the Rhinoceros prototyping software and its Rhinogold application in the spaces of the school's FabLab. They continue to specialise in goldsmith techniques with the experimental and research laboratory. Educational excursions (company visits, fairs, museums, exhibitions, seminars, etc.) complete the training course of the goldsmith school .
