HAWK - University of Applied Sciences and Arts, Faculty of Design, Metal-Design


Hands-on practical experience has a high priority in the study of Metal Design. It includes testing projects and functioning objects to see whether or not the series is ready to go into production. There are working areas devoted to making jewellery and objects, tools and containers, as well as architecture-related works in metal. The professional field of metal designers is as complex as the material itself and the students move somewhere between applied, free art and design services at HAWK's Faculty of Design.

Gerrit Rietveld Academy


The Rietveld Academy Jewellery Department's programme looks at the potential and scope of jewellery as a medium, with the goal of innovation and further development. It includes various means of approaching the profession and diverse working methods. Emphasis is placed on the student's individual research, which is geared towards the development of a personal approach to his or her subject matter. Students learn to give their themes shape and form and this requires experimentation and an open and methodical way of working.
