Summary

The MA Jewellery and Metal (JaM) programme seeks to unpick the relationship between people and things, from ‘subject to object’ and ‘object to subject’ we are entrapped and enthralled in a complex entanglement of the material and immaterial worlds. Study at the World's number one ranked art and design university.*

As artists and designers, we engage with the making process as an essential way of materialising ideas, thoughts, feelings, offering a space for innovative and radical new ways of approaching jewellery, objects, and metal. We are responsive to the rapidly changing social and cultural landscape, drawing on history and technology in nurturing intellectual and creative skills directed at understanding and pushing forward jewellery and objects of human making. The rich and extensive bodies of knowledge associated with jewellery and metal object-making underpin an approach that is outward-looking and open to the wider discourse of "things" connected to contemporary life. Students can expect to work with, and through, a vast array of material possibilities, exploring a multiplicity of possible narratives.

Through tutorials, critique, workshops and lectures, you are encouraged to challenge traditional perceptions and perceived hierarchies, as well as to question and exploit both digital and analogue realities. Seminar and group discussion form an essential part of the programme as we believe that the cross-fertilisation of ideas alongside staff and peer feedback is essential to postgraduate learning and interdisciplinary thinking.
