Nicola is one of our Short Course tutors, teaching silversmithing. Nicola graduated from Hereford College of Arts in 2015 with a first class honours degree in Contemporary Craft. She specialised in small metals and since graduating has had a part-time jewellery business, exhibiting in galleries and fairs nationwide as well as selling online. Nicola is primarily inspired by architecture and uses a variety of metal forming techniques within her sculptural work.
Nicola is working increasingly with clients on a 1:1 basis crafting finer jewellery such as bridal wear and wedding bands. This range of scale and application enables her to introduce short course students to a range of metalsmithing and jewellery techniques, expanding students design capabilities.
Nicola has a background in teaching special needs adults and adolescents and is currently embarking on completing her certification of education to teach adults.
