I am very proud to be an official Support Centre for the Mid Cornwall School of Jewellery Silver Metal Clay Diploma Home Study programme. The Home Study Diploma allows students study at their own pace and at a time that suits them. This means they can fit it around their own commitments and is especially suitable for those who cannot travel to Cornwall to study at MCSJ.
A commitment to high standards of workmanship is rigorously applied making the MCSJ Diploma the foremost qualification for those serious about developing as metal clay artists.
The Silver Metal Clay Home Study Grade 1 pack is available to buy from the MCSJ website now, http://www.mcsj.co.uk/home-study-metal-clay-diploma/home-study-diploma.html. Further grades will be available in 2012. The Grade 1 pack contains two instructional DVDs, a CD of resources and project notes and all materials. Completed projects are submitted to MCSJ for evaluation and students get detailed feedback on their work. When all seven projects pass, the student is awarded the Grade 1 Certificate.
There is a network of official Diploma Support Centres around the UK and also in Greece, Austria, Ireland and Germany. Diploma Support Centres offer a range of services to support students undertaking the Home Study Diploma. These include kiln firing services – for which there is a free voucher in the Home Study pack – and open studio opportunities for students to use tools and equipment for a small fee.
