MCJS home study support centre
The MSJC Silver Metal Clay Diploma Home Study programme
Grace and Firefly is 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.
The MCSJ Diploma is widely acknowledged as the most thorough and comprehensive metal clay qualification in the world. It is independent and brand neutral so students learn to work with all types of silver metal clay and it also includes traditional silverwork skills. The three hands-on grades take the student from basic skills to advanced techniques and the fourth grade has two options; Design and Construction or Teaching Metal Clay Effectively.
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. 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, Irland and Germany. As a Diploma Support Centre, Grace and Firefly offers a range of services to support students undertaking the Home Study Diploma, such as kiln fire service, one-to-one critique session to check student's projects before they are submitted for evaluation and additional private tuitions to support the diploma curriculum. Please contact us if you wish to purchase any additional services.
As a qualified MCSJ Silver Metal Clay Higher Diploma holder, Grace and Firefly is committed to high standards of service and teaching.
