For those with a penchant for design, particularly in the field of jewellery, you’ll be glad to know that there’s now a whole range of jewellery design courses for you to take up at Management Development Institute of Singapore (MDIS).
A collaboration between MDIS and the Jewellery Design and Management International School (JDMIS), this joint venture introduces a new set of diploma and advanced diploma programmes which range from fine jewellery design to precious metal arts, gem trade practices to jewellery entrepreneurship.
Situated at the MDIS campus, the freshly renovated jewellery school is fully equipped with state-of-the-art learning facilities including four dedicated classrooms, two specialised jewellery manufacturing workshops and even a computer-aided design lab that hosts 3D jewellery software. In between classes, students can take a break at the Designer’s Lounge, which serves as a co-working space where you can practice your craft and mingle with likeminded peers.
What’s also worth looking forward to is the exquisite collection of more than 1,500 gemstones collected over 38 years by award-winning designer and founder of JDMIS, Tania Sadow. As one of the largest educational collections in Singapore, it’s truly a stunning sight to behold.
You can choose to enrol in an intensive two-month diploma programme, or take up individual certificates over a longer period of time.
