What our students say
With my craftsmanship certificate in my hand I moved to the UK to study Jewellery and Silversmithing at Bucks. It was here where I learned how to develop my own ideas and concepts and transform them into 3D objects. Thanks to all the knowledge and experience I gained at Bucks, I was able to continue my career as a traditional silversmith. Now I am a product designer who develops cutlery ranges and tableware objects for some of the largest flatware companies in the world.Katja Bremkamp
I feel you have to be passionate about pursuing your subject, be self-motivated and be prepared to push the experimentation within your work. My aim is to develop, improve and enhance my creative knowledge and understanding. In the real-world I didn’t often get the chance to do this, but my tutors actively provide an environment where I can develop these qualities.
