The British Academy of Jewellery has announced its programme of short courses for 2020. Running from March to September in London and Birmingham, the courses offer highly focused training in a wide range of jewellery making skills.
The BAJ’s portfolio of short courses is designed to enable both professional jewellers and jewellery students to expand their skills: both beginner and intermediate courses are available, from one-day introductory workshops to specialist training in advanced techniques.
The programme features exciting array of course options, including jewellery design and rendering, manufacturing techniques, silver ring and earring making, enamelling, stone setting, wax carving, curb bracelet and chain making, CAD modelling in Rhino and illustration with Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop.
In addition to supporting practising jewellers to refine their skills, the short course programme also provide a rare opportunity for those considering becoming jewellers to try out a hands-on activity in the our studios – an excellent opportunity for students who might be considering progression onto longer BAJ programmes.
All of the courses are taught in professional-level bench studios, computer-aided design suites and design studios at the BAJ’s campuses in London and Birmingham, at the heart of the cities’ respective jewellery quarters.
Founded in 1999, the British Academy of Jewellery is a provider of pioneering jewellery education and training, nurturing talent and technical ability. In addition to short courses, the Academy offers accredited diplomas in jewellery design & manufacture and works with local industry partners to provide jewellery apprenticeships.
