Edinburgh College of Art

Jewellery and Silversmithing at Edinburgh College of Art is a small and specialised department with a world-class reputation for high quality craftsmanship and design. We balance old and new approaches to traditional craft techniques with innovation, exploration and cross-disciplinary collaboration. Our objective is to design critically informed work that integrates ‘thought’ and ‘practice’ to contribute towards the ever evolving creative industries within and outwith our discipline. We have a philosophy that encourages a wide range of approaches, from the traditional Gold and Silversmiths’ trade, to the contemporary influences of art, craft, design, technology and science.
