On 15th November a group of Year 13 Level 3 BTEC Art and Design students visited the Birmingham School of Jewellery which is situated in the Jewellery Quarter.
Birmingham School of Jewellery is the largest jewellery school in Europe. It is part of the Arts, Design and Media Faculty at Birmingham City University. The students took part in a tour of the school, had the opportunity to view current work of the University students and they also took part in a workshop run by University staff to create an item of jewellery.
The students enjoyed the visit and were able to understand alternative methods of developing ideas which they can use to enrich their own working practices.
