Adobe Illustrator Essentials for Jewellery Design

Event Details

This event is running from 5 November 2024 until 19 November 2024. It is next occurring on 5 November, 2024 10:00 am

CADJewellerySkills is proud to offer in conjunction with The Goldsmiths Centre our officially certified Adobe Illustrator for jewellery design online short course.

This is the first of a series of two short courses designed to cover all the essentials of technical jewellery design drawing in Adobe Illustrator.

Over the three online Zoom sessions of this course, we will start from the beginning and learn the fundamentals of making vector shapes in Adobe Illustrator.

Much of the contents of this series of courses correlates with the beginner and intermediate training in Adobe Illustrator offered by most other institutions. However, this course is a rarity in that it specifically focuses on using Adobe Illustrator for technical jewellery illustration and rendering.

Although the class follows a clearly defined structure there is embedded support within the course to help students approach working on their own individual projects.

Course topics include:

  • Session 1: Introduction to the Adobe Illustrator interface. You’ll learn the craft of orthographic drawings for stone shapes and shading and colouring principles.
  • Session 2: Understand how to control the Pen tool, one of Illustrator’s most important features. Use it to modify existing shapes, working with layers and the stacking order to create stunning visual compositions.
  • Session 3: Upgrade your workflow by learning techniques such as importing images for tracing, using transformation tools and building your very own object library. Cap it off with a multi-way drawing of a ring and learn the ins and outs of exporting for future use.

As with all courses we offer, we assume you already have the required software and hardware.

You can enrol via the Goldsmith’s Centre’s website, or using the Paypal link below.

One of the best investments I have made

“His knowledge of Jewellery CAD is on a different level, truly a master in 3D CAD. I am looking forward for next course already. To take CJS courses is probably one of the best investments I have made when it comes to my career. 11/10”
