Jewellery and Silversmithing Graduate Shows 2020

Truro & Penwith College Art 

An online exhibition this year, which is a fantastic opportunity to get an insight into the inspiring and varied Art & Design courses on offer across our campuses which range from fine art, silversmithing, product design, textiles, ceramics and more, and are open to all ages and abilities from part time leisure courses to degree level options.

1 -  13 June 2020

Graduate Showcase

The ECA Jewellery & Silversmithing Department will be holding an Instagram takeover between 1st and 13 June for the class of 2020.

“Our philosophy is to combine material and technical innovation with traditional craft techniques and concepts long associated with this historic discipline. Our objective is to enable you to design and create personal, individual pieces of work that push the boundaries of our subject. We want you to create the heirlooms of the future and sensory objects that enrich people’s lives, successfully reflecting both ‘thought’ and ‘practice’.”


Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design - Jewellery and Metal Design BDes (Hons)

12 - 21 June 2020

A live online launch event will be held on Friday 12 June, between 18:00 - 20:00.

“The Art, Design and Architecture Graduate Showcase 2020 celebrates the achievements of our graduating students from University of Dundee’s Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design and the department of Architecture within the School of Social Sciences.

In the absence of a physical exhibition at this point in time, this website will provide an opportunity to browse the work of our final year students. The courses on show cover a range of artistic disciplines and encourage creative work across multiple media and genres. Accumulating from years of creative development and hard work pieces range from fine art and jewellery to sculptures and items designed with innovation and functionality in mind.

We very much hope that you will enjoy viewing the outcomes of these endeavours and the immense range of work and talent on display, and join us in congratulating the class of 2020, particularly given the challenges they have faced over the last few months to complete their Degree.”

The Glasgow School of Art - Jewellery & Silversmithing

On now

The Silversmithing and Jewellery programme at Glasgow School of Art have created a virtual exbition of graduate’s work from this year’s class of 2020.

“The Silversmithing and Jewellery programme at Glasgow School of Art aims to provide a broad, balanced approach to the specialism, from the development of original design concepts through to finely crafted finished work.

A strong emphasis is placed on the individual, allowing students the freedom to pursue and realise their own ideas, encouraging the exploration of materials and concepts in order to create their own voice.  The journey through the design process is important and informs the final work. This is demonstrated through an incredible range of source material and creative interventions.    Through this exploration, graduates have a rich source of inspiration from which to develop ideas.  This creative toolbox has generated graduates, past and present that have technical skills but equally, skills to think creatively in all aspects of design and applied arts.”
