With the LaSalle College Vancouver jewellery design program, students can turn a passion into a creatively rewarding career. In only one year, and with no experience necessary, students will learn to produce an original collection of jewellery. Experienced and passionate teachers guide students through the jewellery design process, from the development and fabrication of jewellery from concept, design to final product. Students will be immersed in a foundation of metalwork and alternative materials, and will learn design skills in a supportive, lab-based environment. Students will be encouraged to experiment throughout the design process, while learning about sustainability, ethics, and technical design skills. They will learn how to promote and market their products, and will create a capstone project that meets entrepreneurial, design, artistic, and commercial objectives.
Small classes ensure students get the individualized help they need in the school’s bright, comfortable jewellery design studio. Students learn traditional freehand drawing and painting techniques that are later enhanced with digital illustration skills. They also participate in jewellery presentations and photography sessions that help shape and define their style and brand.
