Our everyday life is surrounded by design. Jewelry Design at Engelsholm Folk High School gives you the opportunity to work with jewellery as a modern artform. You will learn how to combine craftsmanship with aesthetic considerations, to help you in finding your personal artistic expression.
Jewelry Design lends room and space to idea generation, exploration of materials, experiments, mad ideas or going in depth with the craft, in an inspiring workshop placed in beautiful surroundings.
Good design is reflected in both materials, function and aesthetics. Beauty finds it expression in the balance between design and the personal expression.
